Providing Quality Behavioral Healthcare Since 1978

Kitsap Mental Health Services (KMHS) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization providing a full range of inpatient, outpatient, and residential behavioral health services for children and their families, adults and older adults.

We know from experience that mental illness is treatable and that people can and do recover and return to full, normal activity.  KMHS serves more than 6,500 children, youth, adults and families each year, providing hope, strength and stability when it’s needed most. As a respected leader in the community mental health and substance use disorder field since 1978, we’ve earned a reputation as a vigilant steward of public funds. KMHS employs more than 500 individuals staffing dozens of programs and serving Kitsap residents of all ages and backgrounds.

Factors that predict mental health problems can be identified in the early years.
