  • Mental Health Support 
    • BHS has two mental health counselors available for students. You can ask your school counselor for a referral or you can work with your insurance company to find a provider who is covered by your policy. 
    • The Washington State Mental Health Referral Service for Children and Teens connects patients and families with evidence-supported, outpatient, mental health services in their community. This free, telephone-based referral service is funded by HCA and operated by Seattle Children’s. The Mental Health Referral Service will provide services through mental health referrals for Washington state children and teens, ages 17 and younger. Families can call 833-303-5437, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm PST, to connect with a referral specialist.  
  • Grief and Loss Support 
    • The Healing Center is currently offering grief support groups virtually for anyone who is suffering from losing a loved one. This is a non-profit organization and they do not charge nor bill insurance but operate from donations.
