Welcome to the King County Behavioral Health and Recovery Division (BHRD)

We provide high quality behavioral health services to low income individuals in need. Our division provides a wide variety of services including crisis services, mental health treatment, substance use disorder treatment, and diversion and reentry services. We offer services that are respectful, tailored to individual needs, and most of all, effective. The King County Behavioral Health and Recovery Division is one of four divisions in the King County Department of Community and Human Services.

For your convenience, our website has recently been updated and divided into three separate sections that include the following:

Main Behavioral Health Section

Co-occurring treatment, Mental Illness and Drug Dependency Action Plan, Criminal Justice, Client Rights, HIPAA, and Legislative Priorities

Mental Health Section

Crisis Services, Community Mental Health Treatment, Client Rights, Employment, Housing, Client and Family Resources, Recovery, Advocacy, Mental Health Information, Tobacco Treatment and Frequently Asked Questions

Substance Use Disorder Section

Prevention, Intervention, Treatment, Community Organizing Program, Tobacco Treatment and Client Rights

Please also note the pages devoted to the activities of the King County Mental Health Advisory Board, and the King County Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Administrative Board. These citizen boards provide a vital link between county government and the community. Meeting agendas and meeting minutes are available as well as applications and application information. Anyone interested in serving on any of these boards is encouraged to explore those pages and consider applying and joining their efforts to improve and strengthen publicly funded mental health and substance use disorder services to the community.

Thank you for your interest in the Mental Health, Chemical Abuse and Dependency Services Division. Feel free to provide feedback about our new Web site at We look forward to hearing from you!
