The Division of Prevention and Behavioral Health Services, also known as DPBHS, provides an array of prevention, early intervention and behavioral health treatment services statewide. 

Our vision, for all children and families to be strong, resilient, and live in supportive communities and our mission, to develop and support a family-driven, youth guided, trauma informed prevention and behavioral health system of care, drives us to continuously improve our services and reach our vision.

We serve Delaware families through prevention and early intervention programs that promote safe and healthy children, nurture families and communities, support social and academic success, and improve early identification of needs.  We also serve eligible families of children and youth (through age 17) with behavioral treatment needs.

We encourage you to visit our 2023-2025 Strategic Plan Goals and Objectives, look around the site, and please contact us for more information by calling (302) 633-2600 or e-mailing PBHS.DSCYF@delaware.gov
