Transforming the lives of children, young people and adults with mental illness and Substance Use Disorders
Founded in 1966, Navos is one of the largest providers of community mental health services in Washington. It’s also the public mental health provider for more than 40 percent of all youth served by the King County community mental health system.
With community donations, Navos is able to provide mental illness and Substance Use Disorder treatment to people belonging to vulnerable groups in the Seattle area. Over 90 percent of clients live at or near poverty, and roughly half of the individuals served are people of BIPOC communities.
Donor-funded programs and services include:
- Infant and early childhood mental health program that works with the entire family to prevent the occurrence or escalation of mental health problems, minimizing children’s social-emotional development risk
- Children’s long-term inpatient program (CLIP) that offers 24-hour residential and psychiatric care for children and adolescents 13 to 18
- Adolescent drug and alcohol treatment that helps youth 13 to 18 identify and achieve successful, attainable goals
- Adult Outpatient Services, including primary care and Substance Use Disorder programs
- Supported housing and other services that prevent houselessness for over 300 people with mental illness and other complex challenges
- Peer Bridger program that’s made up of former clients who have specialized training to help current patients successfully discharge from and continue their treatment, preventing future crisis and re-hospitalization
Your generosity provides treatment and support to children, youth and adults, so they can recover and lead full, independent lives.
