Renton, Washington is a quaint little town located near Seattle with family-friendly attractions and events at your disposal. The city is growing as is evident by the numerous construction projects in the downtown area. Here a new transit center, high-end condominiums, and a farmers market are being developed to meet the needs of families and couples around the city.1 Furthermore, the city is headquarters of the fantasy/sci-fi game developer Wizards of the Coast, which can be of great interest to the gamers within your family, especially teenagers. For families with an interest in watching theatrical performances, the Carco Theatre is located within the city and has multiple shows, especially in the summer. This location only has 300 seats, but is rated as one of the best venues in the area.

Mental Health in Renton

People who live with a mental illness or care for someone with a mental illness can feel as though they are alone. Peer groups can ease that feeling and provide much needed care and support. The Western and Central Washington chapter of the Alzheimer's Association offers many local support group meetings for caregivers, spouses, and children of individuals who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's. These groups are free of charge and offer participants a means of sharing their feelings in a safe environment.2 Other support groups are offered by the Highlands Community Church. Individuals struggling with chemical dependency can participate in the Celebrate Recovery Group. The Divorce Care Group is led by survivors of divorce and offer a nondenominational message for rebuilding one's life. A Grief Share Group is also available for those who have lost a loved one. Call 425-255-4751 to obtain more information.3

Renton Area Youth & Family Services (RAYS) is a local non-profit agency making a positive impact on the lives of children, youth and families who have been touched by poverty, substance abuse or emotional conflict. Depression, grief, and involvement in the criminal justice system are other common topics with which many people struggle, and for which RAYS provides assistance. Most programs are free of charge, although no one is ever turned away because of ability to pay. You can learn more about RAYS by calling 425-271-5600, extension 130.4

Current Initiatives

The King County Citizen Corps Council and Washington Citizen Corps have joined forces to teach classes on more than a dozen topics related to disaster recovery, with a special emphasis on Psychological First Aid.5 This initiative is funded through a grant from Homeland Security. Such events are necessary due to the fact that there are a mere 29 firefighters and 12 police officers on duty serving a community of almost 94,000 residents. By becoming an official CERT (Community Emergency Response Teams-A Partner Program of Citizen Corps) member, the government of Renton has assured that citizens receive immediate psychological assistance in time of disaster.
