MHCAG Recommendations & Resources

MHCAG Recommendations

The MHCAG continues to work on developing treatment algorithms and other clinical practice recommendations and resources for clinicians, patients, families, friends and others. In 2021, most of the group’s work will focus on creating clinical practice recommendations for major depressive disorder.
Recommendations will be posted within 30 days of approval to this page and are based on scientific research and MHCAG member professional expertise.*


    Oregon Psychiatric Access Line (OPAL) is a clinical consultation service for prescribing providers only.

    OPAL is available Monday – Friday (excluding major holidays) from 9am-5pm by calling 503-346-1000.
