Mental Health Services

King County reports, “Mental illness that’s untreated and mistreated costs the United States $8 billion in crime and welfare expenditures each year.”

The Mission builds relationships with downtown businesses and individuals to bring mentally disordered people off the streets and into treatment.

Men and women have to voluntarily enter treatment, persuading them is often a long process. 

Larry Clum, our Mission expert shares, "It's time to change our thinking about those with mental illness."


Success with partnerships

We’re partnering with the Metropolitan Improvement District (MID) ambassadors, local service providers, and law enforcement. Through this partnership, we can respond quickly and reduce 911 calls.

Through these partnerships we’re giving men and women mental health services to promote stability, wellness, and positive participation in the community.


The services we provide

Our mental health program in downtown Seattle provides:

  • Counseling
  • Relationship building
  • Mental health first aid
  • Crisis response and intervention
  • Community training and education
  • Referrals to service providers by outreach specialist

But we can't meet the skyrocketing needs alone. We're looking for volunteers to sign up for our Mental Health First Aid Training and partner with us on the street.
