YES Sumner-Bonney Lake Program Overview
Youth Engagement Services Sumner-Bonney Lake (YES Sumner-Bonney Lake) is a collaborative treatment model that will provide behavioral health support services to Sumner-Bonney Lake School District families and personal. YES Sumner-Bonney Lake—a partnership between Mary Bridge, Sumner-Bonney Lake School District and Kids’ Mental Health Pierce County will be providing behavioral health navigation to identified students who are at risk of interrupted learning due to severe behavioral health risk factors.
The intent of the Behavioral Health Navigator-SW (BHN-SW) position is to reduce emergency department utilization for behavioral health needs for youth and provide behavioral health navigation to Sumner-Bonney Lake School District to students who are at risk of interrupted learning due to severe behavioral health risk factors. The BHN will work collaboratively with students, families and school personal to complete a screening assessment with the parent and student and assist with behavioral health navigation to assist the student with accessing community mental health support services and/or referral to Kids Mental Health Pierce County Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT).
