Seattle Counseling Center (SCS)
Seattle Counseling Service is a community based organization that has been dedicated to promoting health and wellness within the LGBTQ community for 45 years. They are committed to providing accessible services, offering a sliding fee scale in addition to accepting Medicaid and many insurance plans.
Founded in 1969, Seattle Counseling Service is proud to be the oldest LGBTQ-focused community mental health agency in the world!
Started as part of the Dorian Society in Seattle in 1969, SCS later expanded to become an independent organization. They began in a rented house with one telephone and several volunteers who hung out, ready to answer the phone, talk with people who dropped by, and offer counsel and support.
SCS has been licensed as a mental health center since 1974. Among the programs pioneered by SCS, the Domestic Violence Program (started in 1982) was one of the first in the nation to offer help to those in same-sex relationships.See more
