Crisis Recovery Center at Parkland-Spanaway

We need a place in the Parkland-Spanaway area where law enforcement, EMTs, and families can bring those suffering from mental health crises -- such as suicidal thoughts and delusional disorders -- to receive immediate and appropriate care.  First responders, health care providers, and the community identified this facility as a top priority for our region.  A Crisis Recovery Center serves only 16 people at any one time, has a 1:2 staff-to-patient ratio, is locked and secure, and all patients are transported to and from the center by law enforcement, ambulance, family or contracted transport.
