AMHPAC, Oregon's federally-required planning and advisory council, advises the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) on the adequacy and allocation of publicly-funded behavioral health services.​

​The commission improves health and safety, strengthens families, reduces crime and save taxpayer dollars through the effective implementation of a unified, coordinated alcohol and drug prevention and recovery system.​

The council ​provides oversight of children's mental health system planning, coordination, policy development, fiscal development and evaluation of service delivery/functioning.

The council is tasked with developing recommendations aimed at improving access to effective behavioral health services and supports for all Oregon adults and transitional-aged youth with serious mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders.​


​The purpose of the Oregon Alliance to Prevent Suicide is to reduce youth suicides in the state of Oregon. Alliance members are appointed by the Oregon Health Authority to develop a public policy agenda for suicide intervention and prevention across agencies, systems and communities.​

The council ​advises the OHA Director on the provision of behavioral health services in Oregon.​

​The goal of the collaborative is to bring together multiple sectors across the community to collectively address and prevent behavioral health challenges with a focus on activities that can make an impact in 12 to 24 months, starting in the tri-county area.

This advisory group will make recommendations for national accreditation requirements for substance use treatment providers in Oregon and weigh the impacts of accreditation on providers in relation to the essential services they provide.​

​The council acts as a central, impartial forum for statewide policy development, funding strategy recommendations and planning, with the goal of improving the effectiveness and efficacy of child-serving state agencies and the continuum of care that provides services to youth (ages 0-25).
