Behavioral Health

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.

Thanks to our 2017 affiliation with Navos, MultiCare Behavioral Health is the largest mental health provider in in the state of Washington, offering services throughout Pierce and 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.

Greater Lakes Mental Healthcare to Affiliate with MultiCare Behavioral Health

In March, MultiCare announced plans to affiliate with Lakewood-based not-for-profit behavioral health care provider Greater Lakes Mental Healthcare. That affiliation is expected to be complete summer 2018. Learn more about this upcoming partnership.

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

MultiCare Behavioral Health has been helping people in Pierce County along their road to recovery from mental health issues, as well as substance abuse and other addictions, since 1972. Navos began in 1966 as Highline West Seattle Community Mental Health Clinic, providing treatment to people throughout South and West King County.

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, allows us to help our patients get the care they need when — and where — they need it most.
