In response to consumers and families, we guide the delivery of the highest quality services through maximizing resources. We are committed to the following concepts and principles:
Recovery from serious mental illness and strive to provide services that promote that process.

Early Intervention services that are individualized, family centered, and delivered in natural environments for infants and toddlers with developmental delays.
The Joinder Board of Commissioners governs Juniata Valley Behavioral and Developmental Services
The Administrative Office reports directly to the Joinder Board of Commissioners; and is responsible for planning, development and monitoring of services through contracts with over 40 individuals and agencies. Although in operation since 1969, the formal Joinder Board Agreement was established in 1976. The annual flow of events and decisions presented to the Commissioners is driven by the state fiscal year and the state reporting requirements. While the Joinder Board agenda is flexible, anyone can approach the Joinder Board at a public meeting held bi-monthly at 10:00 AM.
Updated: Due to COVID-19 all meetings will now be in a hybrid format to include the virtual zoom meeting platform and in-person at the noted location. Meeting information can be found in the news section.
