In response to overwhelming demand, Therapeutic Health Services is happy to announce that it will begin offering youth mental health services at its existing Kent location at 24823 Pacific Highway South.
“We’ve been receiving so many
calls and emails from families in Kent, Federal Way, Des Moines and Burien. Our
Seattle-based counseling staff has been doing a great job responding. We’re at the point where it just makes sense
to have counseling staff closer to the communities they are serving,” said Phillip
Carr, Therapeutic Health Services’ Youth Mental Health Clinical Supervisor.
Therapeutic Health Services is a regional
leader in providing quality wraparound behavioral health services for youth and
young adults and their families in Seattle’s Central District. They are
building on this experience working with youth, families, schools and other
community organizations to serve the needs of the changing population in South
King County. Their array of programs allows them to build a custom portfolio of
services addressing key issues youth and their families face today: trauma,
anxiety, depression, bullying, peer pressure, suicidal ideation, substance use
and behaviors which can lead to juvenile justice system involvement.
Therapeutic Health Services’ staff has expertise providing culturally
appropriate care to communities of color, especially African-American youth and
“With the continuing
gentrification of parts of South Seattle, more low and moderate income families
are pushed to move further south,” said Therapeutic Health Services CEO
Patricia Edmond-Quinn. “We are thrilled to be able to continue to work with
these families in South King County.”
