April 25, 2023 Special Election
Vote for King County Walk-in Crisis Care April 25, 2023
If approved, King County Proposition 1 would fund five walk-in crisis care centers, including one dedicated to youth.
It would include:
- A countywide crisis care centers network
- Mobile crisis care
- Increased residential treatment
- Post-discharge stabilization
Proposition 1 would authorize a nine-year property tax levy at $0.145 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, costing the owner of a $700,000 home about $100 next year. The levy would exempt eligible seniors, veterans, and disabled persons.
Today, there isn’t a single behavioral health walk-in crisis care center in all of King County. A person experiencing a health care crisis often ends up on the street, in a violent situation, injured, or in jail.
We can do better. Prop 1 is an excellent step toward humane treatment of those in crisis.
