Evidence-Based Practice and Innovation Center (EPIC)
Over the past several decades, researchers have identified a growing number of practices that are effective in supporting people with behavioral health challenges. These evidence-based and innovative practices are important components of a resilience- and recovery-oriented behavioral health system. Therefore, DBHIDS has partnered with researchers, treatment experts, and providers to promote the delivery of behavioral health evidence-based practices throughout Philadelphia.
EPIC was established in 2013 to advance system-wide strategies that support the implementation, sustainability and accessibility of behavioral health evidence-based practices in Philadelphia.
Activities of EPIC include:
- Providing Education and Resources
- Supporting DBHIDS EBP Initiatives
- Identifying Key Strategies for Successful Community Implementation
- Aligning Fiscal and Operational Policies to Optimize Practice Impact
