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 their families.

“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.”
