Who we are

Thurston-Mason Behavioral Health Organization LLC (TMBHO) is a quasi-governmental entity formed by an Interlocal Agreement between Thurston and Mason counties.  We are directed by a Governing Board made up of two Thurston County Commissioners and one Mason County Commissioner.  TMBHO has two organizations, Thurston Mason Behavioral Health Administrative Service Organization (TMBH-ASO) and Olympic Health and Recovery Services (OHRS) that work on behalf of Thurston and Mason Counties.

Thurston Mason Behavioral Health Administrative Service Organization (TMBH-ASO) administers crisis services for all individuals in our regional service area, regardless of an individual's ability to pay. Visit the TMBH-ASO website HERE to learn more.

Olympic Health & Recovery Services (OHRS), a licensed behavioral health agency, provides support to the community through crisis services, jail services, housing, peer support, and more. Visit the OHRS website HERE to learn more.

 

Our employees are more than a group of skilled, caring workers fulfilling individual job descriptions; we are a team that works together and share in the responsibility of caring for our community and in making our vision a reality. In the team, we find diversity of experience, training and background; we have strength in this diversity and believe we can give better service because of it.

Partnerships, Compassion, Integrity, Teamwork
