If you have Washington Apple Health Insurance and want to enroll in our services, you can walk into our Bremerton office at 5455 Almira Drive NE from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. First visits may take up to two hours.
The behavioral healthcare industry, including KMHS, is experiencing staffing shortages. Intakes performed on a walk-in basis are done based on staff availability. While we do our best to perform intakes the day clients walk in, that is not always possible, and there may be wait times.
Your first visit may take up to two hours. During this time you will:
• Meet with a staff member who will gather basic information and work with you to complete necessary paperwork
• Meet with a Mental Health Professional who will discuss your concerns and determine if you meet requirements for our level of care
We may also recommend additional assessments for substance use treatment and psychiatric services.
If your visit is for a child, and you are a parent seeking to enroll them in services, your child must be present during the visit.
If you are not eligible for our services, our staff may provide you with other local and/or regional referrals and/or information.
Scheduling a next appointment
If you meet medical and financial eligibility for our services, a date and time for your first appointment will be provided. This appointment will be within 14 days of your first visit with us.
What to bring to appointments:
• A copy of your insurance/Medicaid card
• A photo ID
• Any pertinent mental health, substance abuse records or information regarding previous outpatient or inpatient care.
• A copy of any:
