Thurston County Jail Services

OHRS operates multiple programs in the Thurston County Jail. 


The Trueblood Program focuses on individuals who are charged with a crime, have been ordered by a court to receive a competency evaluation or restoration services through DSHS; and who have waited in jail for those services.

​If an individual meets criteria for services Trueblood Mental Health Professionals can meet with them for a mental health assessment and make recommendations for next steps.


Individuals may qualify for peer support services with a Trueblood Peer Counselor who can provide services for 90 days after jail release. These peer support sevices could include rental/shelter assistance, connection to behavioral health services, linkage to community resources, and more.
