Quality of Life
Quality of Life
Peninsula Behavioral Health is positioned, literally, “Where the Mountains Meet the Sea.” Our main office is located just a mile from the gateway to Olympic National Park and only 8 blocks from the waterfront (which is convenient if you want to hop a ferry to Victoria, B.C., our nearest metropolitan neighbor). Your daily commute will offer a welcome relief from the traffic gridlock of metropolitan areas, and you’ll find that, on the Peninsula, parking meters and fees are rarer than the Spotted Owl.

Peninsula Behavioral Health bases its personnel policies on an underlying philosophy focused upon respect for the dignity and individuality of each employee. Our team of nearly 100 employees works hard to provide quality comprehensive behavioral health services to the residents of our community.
We support the community and urge our employees to become active in its activities.
We are active within the Washington Community Mental Health Council, which has a strong voice in our state’s capital by educating legislators and administrators and vigorously promoting funding for mental health services.
Despite our growth, our size still enables us to know and greet each other on a first-name basis in the hallways. The doors of supervisors and managers, including the executive director’s, are open to staff. Training is frequently offered on a variety of topics, and all-staff meetings are held quarterly to further promote information-sharing. We promote from within when and where possible.
All full-time staff are asked to participate in our Performance Improvement Process to further strengthen our organization and enhance the quality of our services.
