Our Impact

One in five Oregonians face mental health and addictions issues every year; 1 in 12 face addiction issues.

When left untreated, these issues often manifest into chronic health conditions and uncounted social costs to families, loved ones, and the larger community. In 2020, we helped more than 30,000 people in their journeys toward restoring well-being.

Our integrated approach combines behavioral health services, primary health care, and prevention and family support services to keep children and adults safe and to build strong families and communities.
