Office of Consumer Activities (OCA)

In January 2013, the Oregon Consumer Advisory Council (OCAC) selected the creation of an Office of Consumer Activ​ities (OCA), as one of its top priorities, to work in collaboration with Addictions and Mental Health leadership to improve behavioral health services for the state. In October 2013, the Addictions and Mental Health Director approved funding for the Office of Consumer Activitiesand two full-time positions.


The Office of Consumer Activities was created to address many issues important to individuals who receive behavioral health services. Among these issues are:


•Providing a designated, consumer voice within Addictions and Mental Health;

•Providing technical assistance for peer-run programs;

•Developing a statewide network of Peer Run Organizations (PROs) to facilitate the sharing of mutual support and best practices.


The office has been staffed and in operation as of August 1, 2014.
