Child and Family Behavioral Health

What we do

Child and Family Behavioral Health incorporates System of Care values, developmental science and trauma-informed approaches to elevate behavioral health for Oregon’s children, young adults and their families.

We do this by championing effective and efficient statewide behavioral health services, support and safety. This has a positive impact on all of Oregon’s child-serving systems, including schools, child welfare and juvenile justice.

  • When children get the access to the right behavioral health services when they need them and for as long as they need them, children get better.
  • When they get better, they are able to stay at home, be in school and be successful in their communities.

​Parents, caregivers and family members are invited to join OHA's Director of Child and Family Behavioral Health, Chelsea Holcomb, and OHA's​ Hilary Harrison, System of Care policy coordinator at these discussions. 
  • Share your questions and concerns about mental health and addiction services for children and young people, and
  • Share suggestions for how OHA can support youth, young adults and their families to help them get the right service at the right time for the duration needed.

Representatives from the Reach Out Oregon Parent warm line will also be available to follow up with any specific immediate concerns.
