Crisis Triage & Stabilization in Whatcom and Snohomish Counties
Crisis Triage is a “step down” from voluntary inpatient mental health care, and can allow you to “take a break” from the intense stress you are experiencing, enough to get support and make a plan.
Compass Health provides two Crisis Triage facilities — one located at the Bailey Center in Everett and one in Bellingham, WA. Both Triage programs utilize a recovery model to assist those in behavioral health crisis to access services and supports and resume typical levels of functioning. Multi-disciplinary teams of Peer Counselors, Mental Health Technicians, Clinicians, Nurses, and Psychiatric providers work together to address their needs.
