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 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. Although we have a lot of work ahead, we are excited and energized by the success we’ve had thus far.
