Child Study and Treatment Center (Tacoma)



The Child Study and Treatment Center is the only state psychiatric hospital for children and is accredited by the Joint Commission. The center is designed and staffed for the treatment of children from 5-17 years of age who cannot be served safely in less restrictive settings within the community. We are committed to recognizing and serving the needs of a culturally diverse population, including ethnic and sexual minorities and persons with developmental disabilities.
