It takes a community…

They say it takes a community to raise a child. It can also be said that it takes a community to support the child after he or she reaches adulthood.

Our Mission

At Sequoia Mental Health Services we believe people with mental health disabilities can live independently in the community. We provide services to achieve that life.

Our Mission

At Sequoia Mental Health Services we believe people with mental health disabilities can live independently in the community.
We provide services to achieve that life.

But all too often those with special needs are nudged outside the boundaries of the mainstream. At Sequoia our goal is to help those with psychiatric, emotional and developmental impairments by surrounding them with a staff, volunteers and resources – a community – focused on helping them achieve self-sufficiency and productivity in an environment that is grounded in compassion, integrity and respect for their strengths.

At Sequoia we provide both clinical and housing assistance that engages special needs individuals in a way that enables them to grow and enhance the community around them.

Community Treatment

Sequoia is a non-profit mental health agency serving over 800 individuals with mental illness in Washington County.

In 2011 we incorporated a drug and alcohol program, and in 2012 we instituted a child and family program. We have continued to meet our goals for outpatient therapy and, as a result, many more members of the community have access to care.


Supportive Housing

As part of our mission supported housing provides safe, affordable, and healthy community independent living for clients with severe and persistent mental disorders. 

Sequoia manages three apartment complexes, two transitional houses and one room and board facility. Our apartments are funded through a variety of sources including Housing And Urban Development funds.



Residential Treatment

 Residents benefit from safe and structured environment while establishing the skills needed for daily living and community navigation.
