Shoreline is a city north of the city of Seattle, in the great Pacific Northwest, and has a population around 53,000. There are quite a few points of interest in Shoreline that are great for the whole family, such as Hamlin Park, Kruckeberg Botanic Garden, Shoreline Historical Museum, Shoreline Stadium, and Shoreview Park. Kruckeberg Botanic Garden is located on private property, but is open to the public. The garden is a mix of Chinese and Japanese plants, including exotic conifers, rhododendrons, magnolias, wingnut, and other hardwood trees. The Shoreline Historical Museum is a great place to bring the kids to see how Shoreline was started, with over 6,000 photos and 5,000 artifacts. The Shoreline Stadium is where the local junior football games are played, as well as other local games, such as football and soccer.1

Mental Health in Shoreline

Despite being one of the most affluent cities in the U.S., Shoreline residents face several critical mental health issues. For instance, 7 percent of citizens report frequent mental distress, while 4 percent have poor mental health days on a regular basis. This is just marginally lower than the King County and the Washington State averages. And while they are not as common as heart disease and cancer, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's are major causes of death in shoreline.2 The latter conditions are of significant concern since more than 15 percent of city's population is 65 years of age or older.3

Children, teens and adults who are recently bereaved can find help and support at the Healing Center. The center offers a home-like atmosphere in which those who are grieving can feel comfortable, safe and nurtured.

Current Education

Along with partnering with local non-profit agencies, both the City of Shoreline and King County have launched several mental health awareness initiatives. A prime example is the Mental Health Wraparound Services Initiative, which is a coordinated planning process that leads to an individualized care plan and development of a child and family team. Funded by The Mental Illness and Drug Dependency (MIDD) Action Plan, these services cater to individuals who have undergone counseling, but didn't see improvements in their condition.
