Triage center bridges mental health treatment in Clark County

Clark County will see a boost to its mental health care offerings Monday when local nonprofit Lifeline Connections opens a crisis triage and stabilization program at its Crisis Wellness Center in west Vancouver.

Kara Seibert, Lifeline’s program director for crisis stabilization services, said the center’s mission is to divert people in a mental health crisis away from emergency rooms and incarceration. “The emergency department is not the best place for someone who is experiencing a behavioral health crisis, nor is jail,” Seibert said. “This is a space where people can receive treatment, build resilience to future crises and transition back to the community.”
