Welcome to the Behavioral Health Institute

A Center of Excellence Where Innovation, Research and Clinical Practice Come Together to Advance Mental Health and Addiction Treatment
​The Behavioral Health Institute (BHI) got its start in November, 2017 when the community came together and raised over $1 million with the goal of improving mental health care in Washington and beyond. Since then, we have made tremendous strides in developing a Specialized Treatment for Early Psychosis (STEP) Program and continue to work toward improved crisis intervention and telepsychiatry consultation services and training. Although we have a lot of work ahead, we are excited and energized by the success we’ve had thus far.
