About Us

How We Started

The Island Friends Guild was started on Mercer Island, Washington in March 2015.  We came to know that the Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Unit(PBMU) at Seattle Children's Hospital's did not get any support from guilds. We decided to create a guild whose sole purpose is for the PBMU. Now this guild is more than earning an award, but to help our community and raise awareness on mental health which is around us every day. We hope that this guild's help will one day continue as we continue to grow. We are the first guild that is focused on the Psychiatry and Behavioral Unit at the hospital. This makes us want to work even harder and help this cause even more because this is an incredibly underrated cause worth much more attention than they receive.
