Youth Behavioral Health Navigator Southwest Washington

The Youth Navigator program is a behavioral health care model in which we set up MDT’s (multidisciplinary team meetings) to connect our youth and families to the care and resources they need. We are committed to partnering with the community of Southwest WA to navigate the behavioral health needs of our youth and families by establishing trust, building relationships, inspiring hope, and walking alongside youth and families during the process.

Children, youth, and families are the center and priority of our work. We collaborate with community stakeholders to bring them together with the intent to wrap around the youth and family to ensure they receive the care, support, and services needed to address their complex behavioral health concerns. Our long-term vision is to foster community relationships that will partner with us to reduce the occurrences of emergency room and inpatient hospitalizations due to complex behavioral health concerns.

Program Update March 2024: The Southwest Washington Youth Navigator Program team received over 160 referrals for youth in its first year. We proudly served each youth and family that has come through our doors and have worked to built lasting partnerships with our Southwest Community. We would like to thank our many community partners who have come together to meet with youth and families every week and have put countless hours into supporting our program!
