General Behavioral Health Program Highlights

Apothecary with Valerie Segrest

BHP staff members participated in a six month Herbal Foundation Apprenticeship instructed by Valerie Segrest. Two mental health counselors and one outreach aid (Muckleshoot Tribal Member) participated to gain field experience harvesting, identifying traditional plants of the Muckleshoot People to gain an understanding of how plant teachings offer support with social and emotional health. The course was supported by SAMSHA Harvesting Our Wellness Grant. The second phase of this program includes the addition of apothecary cabinets at Adult BHP, FYS, and Sacred House to offer traditional medicines and incorporate more holistic methods of healing.

Overdose Prevention Training and Narcan Distribution

Distributed close to 1400 Narcan kits from January to October 2022 in an initiative to increase awareness and to prevent overdoses in the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe through community engagement and support events.

Deployment of the Behavioral Health After-Hours Helpline: (253) 290-2824

Muckleshoot clinical staff are now available to help callers with emotional distress and find assistance if needed. 

In January 2022, the Muckleshoot Behavioral Health Program and Family and Youth Services launched an after-hours phone line for urgent mental health or chemical dependency needs.

The After-Hours Helpline was developed in response to community feedback and is monitored by BHP mental health and substance use disorder professionals.

Community members are encouraged to call BHP during business hours for urgent support at (253) 804-8752, but the After-Hours Helpline is available to the Muckleshoot community 7 days a week outside of regular business hours, including weekends, evenings, holidays and closures.
