JJPI In-Person and Telehealth Service Information

All of JJPI's outpatient programs are open for both in-person (onsite) services and telehealth (virtual) services. All participants are able to choose whether in-person, telehealth, or a combination of both works best for them. New participants should talk to intake staff and/or their assigned intake evaluator about their preference for receiving on-site or telehealth services at their intake session, but participants may change their mind once assigned to a clinician.

COVID-19 Safety Precautions: JJPI is classified by the City of Philadelphia Department of Public Health as a healthcare facility. We therefore continue to implement best practice COVID-19 safety guidelines in accordance with the City of Philadelphia's regulations for those settings, which at this time includes self-screening for COVID-19 exposure/symptoms, mask wearing for all, and social distancing.

Emergencies: If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, please call the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual Disability Services' crisis line by dialing 988 (the new national mental health crisis number) or 215-685-6440 (available 24 hours per day) or visit this website for more options.
