Southwest Washington Services

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

Crisis Services

Mental Health and Substance Use Block Grant Planning

Each region in Washington must have a current plan that directs the administration of local behavioral health funding from the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration.

Family Youth System Partner Round Table (FYSPRT)


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.

Ombuds voor gedragsgezondheid

De Ombudsdienst biedt gratis en vertrouwelijke hulp als u een probleem of klacht heeft over uw gedragsgezondheidszorg. Het is onafhankelijk van Beacon. De Ombudsdienst kan u helpen met het klachten- en beroepssysteem. Het kan u ook helpen bij het indienen van dossiers en u bijstaan tijdens een hoorzitting op de administratieve beurs.

Criminal Justice Programs

Beacon contracts with local providers to deliver services to individuals with a behavioral health need who are involved with the local criminal justice system or incarcerated in the local jails. Services are provided within the rules of the two state proviso funding sources: Criminal Justice Treatment Account and Jail Transition.


The Southwest Washington Behavioral Health Advisory Board (SWWA BHAB) is a voluntary and community driven group that advises the Southwest Washington region on local behavioral health priorities.
