The Emotional Wellness Team joined the clinic in December 2018 as a collaboration between Catholic Community Services and South Sound Pediatrics. The EWT provides brief integrated behavioral health care for a variety of needs. We offer solution-focused support and thoughtful discharge planning that connects the patient to ongoing services in the community if needed. The Emotional Wellness Team works to offer resources that best meet families’ needs in the community; when indicated, medication management is available in consultation with a pediatric psychiatrist. Contact your PCP for additional information or to request a referral.
