Welcome to the Website of the
We hope you will visit our site often for updates and important information regarding mental health care in Washington State.
Who we are: The Washington State Coalition of Mental Health Professionals and Consumers is a multi-disciplinary group of mental health professionals and consumers. Created in early 1994, the Coalition supports and advocates for specific values that are essential for effective psychotherapy. The Coalition works toward a health care system in which mental health benefits are a vital component. Mental health services offered through benefits plans must balance high-quality services and cost efficiency while maintaining respect for the therapeutic process, recognizing the importance of the patient-therapist relationship, and protecting the patient's right to maximum confidentiality within that relationship. In this time of continuing change in the delivery of mental health services, the Coalition serves as a resource and support for consumers, practitioners, and any others who share this vision and wish to make mental health care reform.
