Washington State’s Wraparound and Intensive Services (WISe) provides intensive support and services to youth and families who are experiencing behavioral health symptoms that disrupt or interfere with their family function, school, or with peer interactions. The program is designed to assist youth and their families in achieving wellness and safety, as well as, strengthening communities.

WISe uses a team-based approach to provide services to youth, under the age of 21, who are eligible for Medicaid. WISe services are individualized, intensive, coordinated, comprehensive, culturally relevant, and home and community-based.

Wahkiakum County Health and Human Services (WCHHS) is in the process of becoming a Washington State Department of Health WISe provider. Those interested in receiving WISe-like services are encouraged to call 360-795-8630 to request further information. Upon approval from the Department of Health, our referral process will be as follows:

Anyone can make a referral for a WISe screen, including the youth and family. Referral forms are available, if requested, but are not mandatory. The screening will be conducted within ten (10) business days of receiving a referral. Screenings can be conducted over the phone, in the home, or in the office. Screenings will be completed in a fashion that is most convenient for the client.

Please contact WCHHS at 360-795-8630 to make a referral for WISe services.
