is a voluntary, family-focused, strength-based process intended to support youth and families with unmet behavioral health needs by bringing a team of community service providers and other resources together as identified by the family.

The primary focus of these publicly-funded services is to serve Title 19 (TXIX) Medicaid eligible adults who have chronic and persistent mental illness, and children/youth with severe emotional disturbances. Individuals without Medicaid may receive acute care and crisis services based on the availability of funding, which is monitored by the Thurston Mason BHO. The services provided are a vital part of maintaining the communities overall health, safety, and quality of life.
