Washington County Mental Health Services advocates the inclusion of all persons into our communities and actively encourages Self-Determination and Recovery. We serve all individuals and families coping with the challenges of developmental disabilities and mental health by providing trauma informed* services to support them as they achieve their highest potential and best possible quality of life.
*Trauma informed services are not designed to treat symptoms or syndromes related to abuse or trauma. Instead, the primary purpose is to deliver mental health, addictions, housing supports, vocational or employment counseling services, etc., in a manner that acknowledges the role that trauma plays in the lives of most consumers of mental health and substance abuse services. This understanding is used to design service systems that accommodate the vulnerabilities of trauma survivors and allow services to be delivered in a way that will facilitate consumer participation that is appropriate and helpful to the special needs of trauma survivors.
