    Effective March 15, 2016, jails or assigned defense attorneys may request a Triage Consultation for any inmate on a court order awaiting forensic services from the State Hospital whom the staff believes requires additional psychiatric intervention because the individual is currently in danger related to:
    – significant and life threatening psychotic symptoms; and/or
    – active suicidal intent or actions – as differentiated from suicidal ideation or gestures

    To learn more about this resource, please read the memo and Triage Consult Form (attached on the Bar website – click link to read full post if you are reading this via email). For questions related to triage, please contact Ingrid Lewis at (360)725-3254 or email triageconsult@dshs.wa.gov. Thank you for your attention and assistance in making improvements to our state’s forensic mental health system.
