Southwest Washington Services

For Clark, Skamania, and Klickitat counties, Beacon manages these core services:

CHILDREN’S LONG-TERM INPATIENT PROGRAM COMMITTEE (CLIP)

The Southwest Washington Children’s Long-Term Inpatient Program Committee (SWWA CLIP) is composed of various agency representatives and community members that meet on a monthly basis to help guide youth and families in navigating the most intensive, publicly funded inpatient psychiatric treatment available to them.  CLIP services are designed for youth between the ages of 5 to 18 years old.  Applying for CLIP enrollment is done region by region by a locally organized CLIP committee.
