Since early 2020, our lives have been changed by COVID-19. Many people are struggling with their mental health, substance misuse, or both. Many of the resources on this page can help.
Some people start with calling the number on the back of their insurance card. Another great place to start is with your Behavioral Health Managed Care Organization (BH-MCO). All Pennsylvania HealthChoices members are assigned a BH-MCO by county. Call your BH-MCO and ask to speak with a case manager or someone who can help to meet your specific need(s).
