Center for Behavioral Health and Learning

The Center for Behavioral Health and Learning is a new, six-story, 150 bed facility on the UWMC-Northwest campus. The Center is part of an ambitious new approach to caring for individuals living with serious mental illness in Washington.

This beautiful modern facility will increase the region’s capacity to treat psychiatric patients, prepare the next generation of mental health professionals, and offer patient- and family-centered care programs to help patients transition back to their communities. The Garvey Institute Center for Neuromodulation opened April 16, 2024 and provides electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to both outpatients and inpatients. In June 2024, 25 beds will open in the Geropsychiatry Unit followed by 75 beds becoming available in July for individuals requiring civil commitment stays of 90-180 days. Fifty medical/surgical beds capable of caring for patients with behavioral health and medical needs will also come online in July 2024.

We’re hiring!
Located in NE Seattle, the new facility offers an unparalleled opportunity to deliver state-of-the-art, compassionate behavioral health care while also training the next generation of mental health professionals. Fill out this interest form to be contacted about current and upcoming positions.
