“WISe” strategies help young people thrive.

Washington State  implemented Wraparound  Intensive Services, or “WISe”, and Peninsula Behavioral Health brought the first WISe teams to Clallam County. The program uses a team-based approach to provide services and is available to Medicaid eligible youth under age 21 who are experiencing complex behavioral health needs.

Wraparound works to honor the family voice and choice, identify strengths, build natural supports and foster self-sufficiency. Teams provide comprehensive behavioral health services to avoid or reduce disruptive out-of-home placements. Click here to learn more. 

Teens and kids deserve their own safe space.

In 2019, Peninsula Behavioral Health opened the Youth Services Center to provide a safe and separate place for Clallam youth and their families.

Having their own designated space makes coming to therapy less intimidating for children and young adults. It also provides our Youth Services staff with the room and resources they need to provide the highest quality care possible.

Client centered services that focus on family.

Our array of services for children and families is client centered and includes outpatient therapy, family treatment, school and community based interventions, and wrap around services. 

Your PBH team will work with your family to find resources that work for you. If you’d like to learn more about accessing services, please call us at (360) 457-0431
