NAMI SW WA’s Behavioral Health Services Unit to Close; NAMI Affiliate Will Expand Advocacy, Support and Education Programs
NAMI SW WA (www.namiswwa.org) has decided to close its three-therapist Behavioral Health Services (BHS) unit, which provided behavioral health therapy to Medicaid patients. NAMI SW WA was the only NAMI affiliate in the nation to provide this service. Over the next 30 days or less, NAMI SW WA will assist its BHS clients to transfer to other service providers. This closure does not impact NAMI SW WA’s other employees, volunteers, or services, which focus on community education, advocacy, and support for individuals and families impacted by mental health conditions.
“This action in no way reflects upon the work done by our three dedicated BHS therapists. With the important experience they have gained at NAMI SW WA, they will go on to further growth in their field, in an industry where they are urgently needed due to a scarcity of qualified professionals,” explained Ann Donnelly, Board President.
For further information, contact Kim Schneiderman, Executive Director, NAMI SW WA, at 360-695-2823.
