The Addictions and Mental Health Division (AMH) has been engaged in restructuring how we do business. This work could not have been done, without the invaluable input and guidance from our stakeholders. AMH is committed to continuing this effective communication and collaboration moving forward
With this in mind, AMH gathered feedback and recommendations from the existing advisory groups about how the advisory activities could be used more effectively and efficiently. These recommendations, along with the needs of AMH System Change, Health System Transformation and guidance from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) led AMH in creating the Addictions and Mental Health Planning and Advisory Council (AMHPAC). This new structure renews the focus of our advisory groups to be more effective and to reinvigorate the council’s role in addictions and mental health processes.
AMHPAC will be responsible for:
- Reviewing the Combined Mental Health and Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant application and reports;
- Serving as an advocate for children, youth, young adults and adults with behavioral health disorders;
- Monitoring, reviewing and evaluating the allocation and adequacy of behavioral health services in Oregon; and
- Other advisory actions as might be assigned by the director of AMH.
AMHPAC works collaboratively with the Oregon Consumer Advisory Council and the Children’s System Advisory Committee to advise AMH. Members of AMHPAC attend and participate in at least one subcommittee. The subcommittees are: Behavioral Health Promotion and Prevention; Treatment; Recovery Support Services; and Housing and Olmstead. Additionally, the Executive Committee will serve as a Metrics and Data subcommittee.
