BHC's Historical Materials 

BHC's Development - 2018 - 2019

CHIP pursued and was awarded a Rural Health Network Development Planning Program Grant from mid-2018 through mid 2019.  The grant supported the development of the Jefferson Rural Mental Health Development Network, (Network) composed of Discovery Behavioral Health, East Jefferson Fire and Rescue, Jefferson Healthcare and Jefferson County Public Health.  This Network was the precursor to the current Behavioral Health Consortium (BHC), whose work is funded by a HRSA RCORP-Implementation grant through 2023.

Now, in 2021, the BHC includes the original Network Members and has been expanded to include Port Townsend City Police Chief, County Sheriff, Jail Superintendent, Criminal Justice, Quilcene Fire Department, UW's Alcohol and Drug Institute, and  affordable housing, private local MAT and counseling service providers, along with an ad hoc committee of several community resource players.

CHIP has procured funding for a total of six years to develop the BHC to lead and facilitate a collective stakeholder approach to the goal of savings lives we might otherwise have lost, reducing recidivism, and ensuring Jefferson County residents in Behavioral Health crisis have access to earlier and local intervention.
