Looking out over the sparkling waves of Lake Washington into metropolitan Seattle, the city of Bellevue has long been considered a mere satellite of its bigger cousin, but the 21st century changed all that. Since the turn of the millennium, this city has been growing by leaps and bounds, both in population and in urban development. At the core of it all there is Lincoln Square in Downtown, which opened in 2005, featuring every sort of material delight, from upscale shopping and innovative fine-dining to tension-relieving, high-end spas. Catch a flick, play some pool, go for a family ski trip on Lake Sammamish, there is much to enjoy here as local residents understand the need for down-time.1

Mental Health in Bellevue

The stress of unemployment can often be compounded by poverty, hunger and homelessness. This, in turn, can lead to significant mental health concerns including substance abuse, uncontrollable anger, and depression. Fortunately, Goodwill offers job training and educational classes at their Bellevue Center in order to help people get back on their feet and do so with improved skills and a renewed sense of hope. Computer courses provide valuable job skills, while English classes help people hone their speaking, reading and writing abilities. The drop-in job search lab is a great resource for individuals to find employment. Call Goodwill at 425-289-0040 for further details about these free services.2

When a mentally ill person is in the midst of a crisis, law enforcement officers are often called upon. To ensure the safety of the mentally ill, the Bellevue Police Department has developed guidelines for officers to recognize and deal with a mentally ill person in a safe, effective and caring manner. Officers are trained to understand common symptoms of mental illness, including confusion, memory loss, incoherent speech and hallucinations. Officers are also trained to take measures to help calm a person who is highly agitated. These measures are taken to ensure that the individual remains safe and does not pose a threat to him or herself, to the officer, or to the general public.3 For more information, call 206-461-3200. Individuals in the midst of a mental health crisis can call the King County Crisis Clinic at 1-866-427-4747 for immediate help.

Current Initiatives

In 2005, the Bellevue City Council sought for more priority funds for mental illness and drug dependency services. The funds, which came from a new county sales tax designed to pay for mental illness and drug dependency services, were earmarked for community-based programs, jail and hospital diversion initiatives and school programs to assist youth.4 In 2005, a state law was passed authorizing counties to impose a one-tenth of 1 percent sales tax for new or expanded mental health and chemical dependency treatment services. The tax, which went into effect in 2008, generates over $32 million each year. As a result of these city initiatives, mental health services in Bellevue have been greatly expanded and improved.5 To inquire about these and other city programs, call 425-452-4090.
