The Clallam County Respite Center opened in December 2014.
PBH is on a mission to reduce hospitalizations.
Hospitalizations for mental health crisis put an enormous burden on our community and each individual resident. PBH helps to minimize hospitalizations by operating a six-bed voluntary crisis stabilization program for adults.
Providing local crisis care reduces the cost of expensive inpatient treatment for many residents, and alleviates pressure on families, emergency rooms, the Port Angeles and Sequim Police Departments, and Clallam County Jail. PBH works with the Salish Regional Toll-Free Crisis Line to dispatch Designated Crisis Responders and provide residents with compassionate, effective, and individualized care.
If you feel you may be in crisis, please don’t hesitate. You do not need to be a current client of PBH to receive crisis support. Stop by our offices and request crisis help during clinic hours or call 1-888-910-0416 any time for crisis services.
