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.

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.
