PMHCC, on behalf of BHFEC, is seeking to establish part-time consulting contracts with qualified licensed psychiatrists and psychologists to perform Philadelphia Family Court ordered evaluations. The goal of the BHFEC is to provide quality psychological and psychiatric evaluations which address the behavioral health well-being and needs of referred individuals. Evaluations involve cases from both the dependent and delinquent court streams, address an individual’s mental health treatment needs, and provide helpful information and recommendations to the Court. The evaluations are an integral part of the disposition process utilized by the Court.
Evaluations are assigned, scheduled, and reimbursed based on a fee schedule which reflects the complexity of presenting issues and the credentials of the evaluator. Contracted evaluators are provided with guidelines and expectations for the structure and format for each type of evaluation. Please follow link for application guidelines and procedures.
