The North Sound Behavioral Health Organization [North Sound BH-ASO] contracts with the Washington State Health Care Authority to provide help to persons in the 5 county North Sound region who are experiencing a crisis due to mental illness or substance abuse.

We are governed by a Board of Directors consisting of county elected official from the North Sound Counties. We make behavioral health services available by contracting with local behavioral health agencies.

Our Vision is that there will be in the North Sound Region a system of care that is shaped by the voices of our communities, and people using behavioral health services.
