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.

DDA provides several support groups for people with co-occurring mental health experiences and substance use/addiction issues.  Please visit the website for a current list of available meetings, online and in-person:  DDA Meetings

DDA also provides private groups specifically for veterans, women, LGBTQIA+.

The Living Room, a program of New Avenues for Youth, provides drop-in programming throughout the county.  These drop-ins provide a safe, healthy, empowering space where LGBTQ+ youth, ages 14 – 20, and their allies can connect with one another and access resources.  Programming is youth led and services are rooted in youth-adult partnership.  TLR also works with Clackamas County schools to develop Gender & Sexualities Alliances (GSA Clubs) for students and plan regular events and activities for area youth. 

Phone: 503-825-2535

FolkTime provides mental health peer support through peer services in Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington Counties. Its Peer Connection Centers offers low barrier drop-in support to those over 18.

The grassroots community of the Peer Connection Centers offers hope, companionship, support, and encouragement. FolkTime includes the Oregon headquarters for Intentional Peer Support through the FolkTime Training and Technical Assistance Center. One-on-one peer support is offered for clients of Clackamas County Health Centers, which also has support groups and activities. 

MHAAO provides peer support to adults experiencing mental health or substance use challenges.  Peers assist individuals in accessing community support resources and developing a network of support within their community.  Peers provide navigation assistance within other systems such as treatment, corrections, child welfare, hospitals, and linkages to physical health resources.

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.
