“Kids in Crisis,” Featuring Sophie King and Dr. Eileen Twohy, Behavioral Health Crisis Care Clinic
Feb. 25, 2021, 4:30 p.m.
Your child tells you he’s having suicidal thoughts – a terrifying revelation. Where do you turn for help?
Seattle Children’s Behavioral Health Crisis Care Clinic provides short-term, outpatient treatment to children and teens having a mental health crisis that’s not an emergency. The clinic offers quick access to brief interventions that help stabilize these kids and teens, then connects them to longer-term care in the community.
Dr. Eileen Twohy and Sophie King will share more about how the clinic helps families in times of crisis.
