Mental Health in Kirkland

Once home to the Seattle Seahawks, the beautiful city of Kirkland is brimming with life. With over 18.9% of the population under the age of 18, bullying is a primary concern for Kirkland parents.2 With plenty of schools catering to thousands of students of all races, ages, genders and unique characteristics, bullying, particularly towards mental illnesses, is a problem that not only requires active monitoring but also control and elimination. The Lake Washington School District has taken proactive measures to reduce the incidence of bullying, harassment, and intimidation in its schools. The district has clearly defined these activities as anything that mentally or physically harms a student, interferes with their education, creates an intimidating school environment, or disrupts the operation of the school.3

For individuals who live with mental illness, help can be found in a number of ways. Non-profit organizations such as NAMI Eastside work to help create a brighter future for all by helping them overcome problems associated with mental illness. As a result, NAMI empowers people and helps them overcome the difficulties of mental illness.
