Welcome to the Reach-A-Peer Helpline!

The Reach-A-Peer Helpline will be out of service until January 2015 in observance of winter break. During this time, we encourage you to write us letters, although please note that we will not be able to respond until January. If you need emergency support, please call the CAPS Emergency number 215-349-5490, and tell the Hospital operator that you would like to speak with the CAPS clinician on-call.

Also please note that after winter break, CAPS will have moved to its new location at 3624 Market Street, First Floor West. 

Have an enjoyable holiday season!
