Mental health. It's an important part of our overall wellness. But it's something that many people don't like to talk about. And those who struggle with mental health issues — whether it be from depression or anxiety, the first stages of dementia or more acute, severe mental illness — may feel isolated from their friends, family and peers. They may feel that there's nothing that can be done to help them.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

MultiCare Behavioral Health is the largest mental health provider in Pierce County, and offers services throughout Pierce and South King counties. We want you to know that mental health challenges are common. They can happen to anyone. They can be treated. And we're here to help.

Mental Health Services for Adults and Children in Pierce and South King Counties

As the leading behavioral health services provider in Pierce County, we've been helping people along their road to recovery from mental health issues, as well as substance abuse and other addictions, since 1972.

Over the years, as the needs of our communities have changed, we have expanded our services to help adults and children throughout the region, both in traditional inpatient and outpatient settings, as well as in less traditional environments like schools and primary care clinics. This, along with our integration with MultiCare Health System, allows us to help our patients get the care they need when — and where — they need it most.
