A relatively new city, Bellevue was incorporated in 1953 and is located in King County, between Lake Sammamish and Lake Washington. Although it is a moderately sized city with just over 130,000 residents, it has an impressive skyline with the beautiful Cascade Mountains as a backdrop. Large open spaces and green areas fill the city, making it live up to its nickname of “the city in the park.” There are more people working in the city each day than there are residents. Approximately 140,000 work in the city at the many dining establishments, entertainment venues, retailers, and corporations such as Expedia and Eddie Bauer, who are both headquartered in the city. The community is so welcoming that it has been listed in the Top 100 Best Places to Live for Money Magazine four times in the past six years1.

 

Mental Health Statistics
Between 2005 and 2009, 6.7% of Bellevue residents reported experiencing consistently poor mental health or distress. In addition, approximately 4 out of every 100,000 individuals in Bellevue received treatment for substance abuse disorders in 2006. Of all adult substance abuse reported in King County, cocaine was used by 20%. The prevalence of suicides among children aged 10 to 17 was 64 in every 100,000. In 2010, the county emergency mental health crisis hotline received over 5,000 calls from Bellevue residents in psychiatric emergencies2.

 

Bellevue Empowers Residents through Education
As part of King County, Bellevue residents have access to a wide menu of mental health services that address concerns related to emotions, addiction, abuse, and other psychological issues. Among these are children and youth services, parenting resources, addiction treatment, abuse and social services, vocational training, parent and peer mentoring, crisis intervention, crisis hotline, and inpatient and outpatient services.

 

In addition to all of the traditional services that the city and county provide, they also offer a comprehensive online portal that has resources for any issues related to mental health and well-being. The county provides data pertaining to prevalence, information on symptoms of mental health issues, and an overview of what to expect in treatment. Implemented plans are outlined in detail, and goals and progress reports are available. In addition to the volume of data that is provided to residents, there are also resources linking residents in need to community contracted providers.

 

In recognition of the need for accountability, Bellevue has sought to maintain full disclosure of mental health rates in the city relative to the county and state. This information allows the city planners to determine what is working well, to strengthen weaker programs, and to expand the successful ones. This has resulted in an integrated system of care and individual involvement, as residents provide feedback and have access to the reports that shape the future of all services in the city. By taking this unique approach, the city has been able to continue to offer innovative and effective mental health services to all residents in need3.
