Resources to Be Well

Skagit Regional Health offers many resources and services to help you be well. See below for information about screenings, mental health support, childbirth resources and more.

 

Screenings

Colonoscopy

Healthy adults over the age of 45 who have not had any colon-related symptoms or any other major health problems are eligible to receive a screening colonoscopy without a doctor’s referral through Skagit Regional Health’s Direct Access program. Call 360-814-5739 to schedule.

Mammography

Mammography plays an integral part in the early detection of breast cancer because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before you or your healthcare provider can feel a noticeable lump. Call 360-814-8208 to schedule mammography in Mount Vernon or Arlington.

Talk with your healthcare provider about the other screenings available at Skagit Regional Health:

  • Prostate Cancer Screening
  • Lung Cancer Screening
  • Cervical Cancer Screening

To learn more, go to SkagitRegionalHealth.org and search ‘screenings.’

 

Mental Health

988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline

If you or someone you are worried about is experiencing thoughts of suicide, a mental health crisis, a substance use crisis or any other kind of emotional distress, please call or text 988 to be connected with a trained crisis counselor. It is confidential, free and available 24/7/365. Services are available in Spanish, along with interpretation services in over 250 languages.
