Crisis Clinic LogoCrisis Clinic is at the heart of the Seattle-King County safety net providing a broad array of telephone-based crisis intervention and information and referral services. For many people in emotional distress or needing community services assistance, we are their “first call for help.” Each year, we improve the lives of thousands of people by listening, caring and linking to services. “When you need us, we’re here!”

Crisis Clinic is state licensed by DSHS/DBHR as a crisis telephone service provider and as a certified chemical dependency treatment service—crisis intervention. We are also nationally accredited by CONTACT USA and the Alliance of Information and Referral Systems. As one of the oldest crisis lines in the nation, we continue to be committed to providing excellent service to all who contact us.

Our passion is caring and listening; empowering people to make positive life changes. We do this through connections between people and critical resources.
Crisis Clinic connects people in physical, emotional and financial crisis to services that will be of help.
We do this to reduce immediate emotional distress and defuse crises for individuals, families and the community; to reduce the immediate risk of violence to one’s self and others; and to increase the ability of people to access the safety net, particularly for mental and emotional support services.
Crisis Clinic serves all people (in physical, emotional and financial crisis) with an emphasis on serving King County residents.

Multi-Agency Alliance for Children logoMAAC (The Multi-Agency Alliance for Children) has been approaching child welfare and behavioral healthcare with an innovative, custom-tailored approach for nearly 20 years.

In 1996, several private non-profit agency directors gathered together to create what ultimately became the MAAC collaborative. These directors were driven to create “a new way of doing business” in the field of behavioral healthcare. Their vision was to create a seamless continuum of care to address all of the needs of the child, adolescent and family while reducing treatment “failures” and uncoordinated multiple placements.

By teaming together to create a continuum of collaborative care, each MAAC member-agency maintains their individuality and expertise in the service areas they uniquely provide. This team approach eliminates the duplication of services across multiple agencies, reducing the risk of becoming “spread too thin.”
