Trends in Social Service Use

For State Fiscal Year 2008

These Chartbooks provide local human service information for government planning, monitoring and funding purposes. For each county and for the state as an aggregate, we identify service use levels, DSHS client-based risk factors, demographics, and geographic detail for: 1. Infants and their birth parents. 2.Youth with high levels of adverse childhood experiences in their birth families. 3. Youth and adults with behavioral health needs (mental health and alcohol/drug treatment). 4. Youth and adults with criminal justice involvement. 5. Working-age adults and children with disabling health conditions. This one-time project was funded by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration, through the Washington State Mental Health Transformation Project. Data provided is for State Fiscal Year 2008.
