Grant to expand behavioral health services

Grant to expand behavioral health services

The 39-foot mobile medical unit is expected to arrive in Port Angeles in September as the 2021-22 school year begins.
“We’re really excited to see what we can do.” Maxwell said he recently visited the construction site in Portland.

“At the same time, we’ll be able to get out to our more vulnerable neighbors who struggle with behavioral or medical conditions that are heading to the ER more often than they should be. “We really do think that this will help us address some critical behavioral health needs in our students much earlier and more effectively by removing those access barriers,” said Dr. Michael Maxwell, North Olympic Healthcare Network (NOHN) CEO, in a Thursday interview.

“We’re really grateful for UHF’s partnership and support of this project,” Maxwell added.
The grant also will be used to help expand the Port Angeles Fire Department’s Community Paramedicine program, which works to connect frequent users of the 9-1-1 system to primary care and other needed services.

The mobile medical unit will expand NOHN’s footprint in the school district, where NOHN has provided on-site medical and behavioral health services for high school students since 2017. Education will be offered to students and parents.
“What we’ve learned is that the need expanded far beyond the high school,” Maxwell said.
“We’ll just drive it from school to school.”

“We can do medical, behavioral and dental screenings.
“It looks like a really big Winnebago,” Maxwell said.
