A stronger connection: Crisis clinic has new name, brand to better reflect its community

Since 1964, Crisis Clinic has been one of the leading providers of essential services that connect people in the Seattle area to invaluable support and resources. Over time, Crisis Clinic’s programs and services have evolved to better meet the needs of people living in the community and across the state.

Through expansion into health and human services with King County 211, to the development of Teen Link – a youth-serving program by teens, and even through the adoption of the Washington Recovery Help Line and Washington Warm Line, for over 54 years, it has always been about connecting people to support, resources and training.

Through surveys and interviews with staff, volunteers, board members, and community partners, the Crisis Clinic team has learned that its name and brand as they currently stand do not fully reflect the breadth of work they do. In order to better tell their story and more fully embrace their identity, Crisis Clinic has announced a new name: Crisis Connections.

Crisis Connections connects people throughout King County and Washington State to vital support and resources. Crisis Connections’ values are still the same as they were in 1964:

Our passion is caring and listening: empowering people to make positive life changes. We do this through connections. between people and critical resources.

“Thank you for your continued support of Crisis Clinic, now Crisis Connections. Your support helps us to provide essential services that connect people to resources that may be of help in difficult times,” states Executive Director, Allie Franklin. “We look forward to continuing to expand the ways that people connect with us into the future.”

The new name is effective immediately and will be implemented across all of the agency’s programs and services. To learn more about the history of Crisis Connections and its programs, please visit crisisconnections.org.
