Children's Addiction and Mental Health Staff Contacts

We're improving mental health services to Oregon's children by:

  • Involving parents and youth in healthcare decisions
  • Delivering mental health services in the community
  • Improving inter-agency coordination
  • Acknowledging children's language and cultural heritage

Together with our partners in mental health, we're developing a complete system of care to support children with special health care needs.
