The Center for Advanced Behavioral Healthcare marks just one step of several that CHOP is taking to address the child and youth mental health crisis as part of a three-year strategic growth plan. The goals of the center include increasing access to ambulatory behavioral healthcare, reducing location-related barriers to care and creating greater community integration.
In the 47,000 square feet of CHOP space in the Provident Building,there are 64 office/consultation rooms, five group rooms for group therapy and five calming rooms. The space was created with the needs of children and youth in mind, with soothing, comfortable furniture and several waiting areas,including one with interactive activities. There’s even a quiet study area so kids can work on homework while waiting for their appointment.
The Center for Advanced Behavioral Healthcare is conveniently located at the 46th Street station stop of the Market-Frankford Line and is across 48th street from the Karabots Pediatric Care Center. Additionally, there is plenty of free parking available.
