As we grow older, we often face difficult struggles and transitions. Loss of a loved one, health problems, retirement, and many other changes can lead to sadness, loneliness, and anxiety.

Our mental health programs help older adults in Snohomish County access mental health and chemical dependency services appropriate for their individual needs. There are no income requirements for eligibility.

Older Adult Mental Health Access

This program provides community outreach, support and information for older adults and their caregivers. Whether you are looking for Mental Health assistance, chemical dependency providers or a support group we can help.

For those individuals looking for a long-term counselor, Homage can assist in helping locate a counselor that takes Medicare and/or Medicaid. Rather than calling around to see which counselor takes your insurance, let Homage help with that process.

Depression Screening Program

This program provides short-term counseling for those individuals who are 60+ and qualify and are dealing with depression, anxiety and grief screening and early intervention to older adults concerned about depression.

We offer free, short-term, individual counseling to those who qualify at the following senior centers and other venues:

  • Arlington – Stilly Valley Health Connections
  • Darrington – Abbott Wolfe Center
  • Edmonds – Edmonds Waterfront
  • Everett – Carl Gipson Senior Center
  • Lake Stevens – Lake Stevens Senior Center
  • Marysville – Marysville Parks, Culture and Recreation
  • Monroe – Monroe Senior Center
  • Mountlake Terrace – Lake Ballinger Center
  • Stanwood – Lincoln Hill Retirement Community
  • Sultan – Sky Valley Senior Community Center

Senior Peer Counseling Program

Trained volunteers call or meet clients in-person, on a weekly basis and talk with them about transitions, coping with stress, sadness and other life challenges. 

This program is dependent on volunteers aged 55+. No experience is necessary. Training and ongoing support are provided for all volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering to support older adults as a Senior Peer Counselor, please click below to complete application.
