Sound Mental Health has expanded its presence at Together Center, a one-stop human services campus serving East King County in Redmond. Anticipating the increase in those able to tap mental health services as a result of health care reform, Sound Mental Health moved into a larger and newly renovated suite A-6 at Together Center, where it began serving clients in March.
Each year Sound Mental Health serves thousands of individuals of all ages in King County. Services are tailored to the diverse needs of each community. Some individuals seek only short-term counseling to address emotional, life crisis or relationship problems. Others have developmental disabilities and require specialized services. Still others require more complex, integrated care to address serious mental health, substance abuse or other issues.
Sound Mental Health provides two major programs at Together Center:
Child and Family Counseling Services provides specialists in the treatment of early childhood mental health issues, childhood trauma, domestic violence, and attachment problems. Additionally, SMH offers support with behavior management and parenting.
“We believe that every family has strengths and expert knowledge about their lived experience,” noted Theresa Winther, Manager, Child and Family Counseling Services Eas,t in a news release. “Those resources have the power to heal wounds. We understand that individual change is promoted by the support of family members. We practice in a manner that facilitates the strengthening of healthy family bonds.”
Adult Services Redmond provides a broad range of services to clients between the ages of 20 and 60. Services are designed to meet an individual’s needs and resources with the focus of attainment of stability and growth consistent with the client’s choice of desire outcomes.
One of the first nonprofit multi-tenant centers in the nation, Together Center was designed first and foremost to lower barriers to finding help. Where East King County residents once needed to travel from Bothell to Renton or beyond to find help at individual locations, people from throughout the Eastside now find comprehensive assistance at one location in downtown Redmond.
