Event recognizes county employees’ and programs’ role in mental health support

Clackamas County will host a Mental Health Awareness Month “Signs of Hope” planting ceremony Wednesday, May 4 at 12:15 p.m. at the Red Soils Campus Circle of Honor, 150 Beavercreek Rd. in Oregon City. Everyone is welcome.

The ceremony kicks off the county’s recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month, and highlights the important roles county employees and programs play in supporting mental health.

Employees and partners will plant signs with inspirational messages around the Circle of Honor to remind those who may be struggling with mental health issues that:

You are not alone. Mental health concerns are as common as physical health concerns, and county employees, regardless of role, are trained to help you find and get the resources you need. 

There is hope. How you feel now doesn’t have to last, but getting help and support early is important. Reach out. There are many supports, services and treatment options available to you. 

We can help. Clackamas County Behavioral Health, Clackamas Health Centers, and our partners offer a wide variety of services to children, youth, families and adults and are here to support you.
