The PA Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) has temporarily suspended certain requirements for providing behavioral health services via telehealth.

Staff may deliver telehealth services via telephonic and video communication applications such as FaceTime or Skype available on smartphones, and through telephonic only devices when video technology is not available.

All KidsPeace outpatient locations in Lehigh and Monroe County will continue to offer free walk-in mental health assessments by clinically trained professionals – no appointment needed. The assessments allow for fast evaluation of mental health condition and if needed crisis intervention – relieving the pressure on hospitals and emergency rooms as they prepare for a surge in COVID-19 cases. KidsPeace is committed to providing walk-in assessments at these offices as long as they are open during the emergency.  The service is available during business hours at these locations:
