Our mission is to promote a culture of community mental health wellness.
To provide coordination, planning, professional learning, and support toward improving community mental health wellness throughout the Riverview Community (Carnation, Duvall, and surrounding areas).
The Task Force is made up of executive level leaders/officers/board members that represent organizations within the community and additional consultants outside the community. This includes but is not limited to city and county governmental entities, service organizations, non-profits, community and mental health providers, public schools, first responders, health organizations, faith-based organizations, and other agencies and organizations as applicable.
The Community Wellness Task Force was established following the tragedies of student loss in our community.
