Who We Are

The Washington State Managed Care Organization (MCO) Health Equity Performance Improvement Project (PIP) Workgroup and Department of Health (DOH) have come together to address the lack of access to mental health care services and promote health equity for low-income youth in Washington State. This workgroup is focused on children and youth ages 6 – 17 that have an identified mental health need. The workgroup aims to close identified health equity gaps among BIPoC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) children and youth across the state.
