Strengthening our community one life at a time…
Whether in the community, home or school, Sound is dedicated to helping children and youth overcome mental health, intellectual/developmental and addiction issues. Our offerings include school-based services, individual counseling, addiction treatment programs and much more, all designed to reintegrate the family and get kids back on track to becoming healthy and productive adults.
Sound’s wide-ranging programs serve a diverse community.
Studies show that the strongest risk factor for passing violent behavior from one generation to the next is witnessing domestic violence in the home. Through innovative approaches, Sound offers programs to break that cycle by delivering confidential and safe mental health and trauma services to survivors of domestic violence.
Fifty percent of all mental health care dollars are spent on adults who were abused as children.
Adult Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Services
In the U.S., 1 in 5 people will experience a mental health issue in the course of a year, often complicated by addiction
issues, as well. With comprehensive and integrated programs designed to treat the entire person, Sound helps adults—
from those with acute mental health issues, intellectual and developmental disabilities and addiction issues, to those with short term challenges, depression and anxiety disorders.
Adults with serious mental illness die 25 years younger than other Americans.
Comprehensive Supportive Services
Without a place to live, or employment, people living with mental health, intellectual and developmental disabilities or addiction issues may find it challenging to access the services they need. Our partnerships with housing facilities
and employers empower us to help eligible clients build a life for themselves and their families.
Early treatment success rates for people with mental illness are between 60 and 80 percent.
Services for the Elder Population
Depression affects 1 in 5 older people in the community and 2 in 5 in care homes. Many in our older population have lived with mental illness all their lives and need somewhere to turn as they enter their golden years. The senior population in King County will reach nearly 25 percent by 2025. Sound’s services are tailored specifically to these men and women and will help them stay as healthy as possible through the natural process of aging.
Depression affects more than 6.5 million of the 36 million Americans who are 65 years or older.
