Accessing Services

The Office of Mental Health does not provide direct care.  Instead, we contract with local agencies to provide services and resources.  The agencies below are the entry points for public mental health care.

If you have health insurance, call the number on the back of the member card to ask about mental health or behavioral health coverage. 

If you have
 Medical Assistance/HealthChoices, contact Community Care Behavioral Health at 866-622-4228 for information about services.  In PA, most children under age 19 with serious mental health needs qualify for Medical Assistance regardless of family income.  By using both private health insurance and Medical Assistance, the family gets more treatment choices as well as more financial help.  You can apply for Medical Assistance by completing the COMPASS application. Our local service providers shown below can helpyou het the benefits for which you qualify
