Hope, Healing, and Recovery

If you are having a mental health emergency, call our crisis line at 503-655-8585.

One in four people will experience mental health challenges in their lifetime. That means mental health touches every single one of us, be it friends, family or yourself.

It’s important to know that having a mental health challenge is part of your whole health package. With the right help, people can and do recover.

Talking about mental health can make people uncomfortable, and misconceptions about mental illness lead to discrimination toward people with anxiety, depression, or other ailments.

This is stigma.

People who experience stigma suffer from a loss of self-esteem, self-efficacy and hope. Stigma keeps people from seeking the help they need when they need it.

We are working hard to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness. We strive to create an environment where people feel comfortable talking about their mental health and where people can seek help with a sense of hope toward feeling better.
