In the event of an emergency or disaster, the Addictions and Mental Health Division supports the delivery of behavioral health services. Addictions and Mental Health partners with State and local Public Health and Emergency Preparedness Agencies to deliver services under Federal Emergency Services Functions ESF 6 and ESF 8. Local behavioral health services in the event of a disaster are delivered by the Community Mental Health Programs (CMHPs), County Behavioral Health Agencies that contract with local providers for services.
The All Hazards Response Plan describes AMH's response with local, state and federal resources to monitor and support delivery of Behavioral Health and treatment services post disaster or emergency to current Behavioral Health clients, responders, and people evacuated into Oregon from locations impacted by disasters.
