Adult Mental Health Initiative (AMHI)


 Receive Adult Mental Health Initiative (AMHI) updates by email




The Addictions and Mental Health (AMH) division together with consumers, Oregon’s Mental Health Organizations (MHO), Community Mental Health Programs, providers and others have embarked on an ambitious initiative that will change the way adult mental health services are delivered in Oregon. The Adult Mental Health Initiative known as AMHI (“Aim-High”) is designed to ensure that the right types of services are delivered at the right time to adults with mental illness.


A key strategy for this project is to transfer responsibility for managing residential services to the MHOs. The goal in partnering with MHOs is to improve coordination and community responsibility for adult mental health services at all levels of care in the system. It is also designed to increase the availability and quality of individualized community-based services and supports so adults with mental illness are served in the least restrictive environment appropriate for their needs. For more information on this initiative, check out Communication #1 below.
