The Cause

A New Behavioral Health Hospital for Pierce County

Pierce County families are in crisis.

One in five adults experiences mental illness.

A family’s world stops when a loved one struggles with issues such as anxiety, depression and substance abuse. And their world falls into a black hole without access to care. 

Our communities are suffering.

Pierce County has fallen far below the national average of 26.1 inpatient psychiatric beds per 100,000 people. In fact, we rank among the lowest in the entire nation with an average of just 2.8 beds.

Families can’t get the care they need when they need it. Our loved ones end up in the emergency department or locked in jail in a crisis. And worse, without access to essential care, our family, friends and neighbors can end up losing their jobs, their homes and their sense of self.  

You can help.

Let’s make behavioral health care a priority and solve this crisis — together.

CHI Franciscan Health and MultiCare Health System have formed a partnership to build a 120-bed behavioral health hospital in Tacoma to help 5,000 adults in crisis each year.

All proceeds from Rock the Foundation 2017 will support the cost of building this new hospital.

On September 23, Rock the Foundation a community of generous supporters will gather with one common goal: providing hope and recovery to families in Pierce County.
