Peer and Family Support Services

What is Peer Support?

Peers are people who self-identify as having lived experience of mental health and/or substance use.  By sharing their lived experiences, peers bring hope to people experiencing mental health and/or substance use challenges.  Peers promote a sense of belonging within the community.  Peer support services help prevent relapse and promote sustained recovery from mental health and/or substance use.

Peers provide services in a variety of settings, including hospitals, jail, treatment centers, courts, schools, and crisis centers, just to name a few.  Research shows us that peer supports reduce symptoms and hospitalizations; improve wellbeing, self-esteem, and increase participation in community; decrease lengths of hospital stays and cost of services; and encourage thorough and lasting recovery.

There are no medical or psychiatric criteria required to qualify for peer delivered services.  For most peer support programs, individuals are NOT required to be enrolled or admitted into any mental health or addiction treatment program.  All peer delivered services available in Clackamas County are peer run and free to anybody seeking support and recovery.

Clackamas County Coalition to Prevent Suicide

Suicide Prevention Coalition logoWe are pleased to announce the anticipated release of Clackamas County’s first ever Suicide Prevention Strategic Action Plan! The plan will be released this Fall and would not exist were it not for over 200 people from our community who participated in listening sessions, the 80 people who completed surveys and the 25 key individuals who were interviewed between 2018-2020.  We engaged the voices of individuals from communities who are at higher statistical risk for suicide, suicide loss and attempt survivors, individuals who live with thoughts of suicide and suicide prevention advocates and champions.

The plan is organized around four key priority areas with each having an associated Action Team (committee). These teams will advance the work of the strategic directions in that priority area of the strategic plan. Joining an Action Team is one of your best ways to have a voice and get involved in moving suicide prevention efforts forward in our community.

  • Youth and Young Adults (24 and younger)
    Youth and young adults and the agencies and individuals who care for and support them will be provided with skills and resources and will understand their role in suicide prevention.
  • Healthcare
    Promote suicide prevention as a core component of healthcare services and implement best or promising practices for identifying and supporting individuals at risk for suicide.
  • Community
    Develop, implement, and support programs and education that promote wellness, safe messaging and prevent suicide within our community.
  • Means Safety (reducing access to lethal means)
    In collaboration with the firearm community, law enforcement agencies, community-based organizations, academic environments, healthcare providers and suicide prevention training partners, promote means safety as part of a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention. 

Clackamas County Coalition to Prevent Suicide meetings will occur virtually every quarter. These meetings will include a report out on the work occurring in the Action Teams and will usually include a presentation or educational opportunity specific to the field of suicide prevention. Coalition and Action Team meetings are open to all!

Involuntary Commitment Services

Oregon law allows a person to be treated for a mental illness against their will if they are experiencing an emotional disturbance and are imminently dangerous to themselves or others or are unable to care for their basic needs. To be committed, a person must meet the above standards in a court hearing where critical information is presented in the form of testimony in front of a judge and the person considered for commitment. If an individual is committed, he or she may receive involuntary treatment for up to 180 days. Our Commitment Monitoring staff assess whether persons who are committed continue to meet commitment criteria and work with hospitals and community agencies to determine a plan for a safe transition to the community and to voluntary treatment as appropriate.

Hours

Open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. We are closed on federal holidays and court furlough days.

Contact

Call 503-655-8585 and ask to speak with a mental health investigator.
