OHA Mental Health Resources

Safe + Strong Campaign

The Safe + Strong Campaign was developed to support communities in their recovery from COVID-19. The Campaign’s Mental and Emotional Health website includes several community and culturally/linguistically responsive care navigation resources, self-care resources, and helplines – including supports for youth and families. » https://www.safestrongoregon.org/mental-and-emotional-health

Oregon YouthLine

YouthLine is a free teen-to-teen crisis support and help line. YouthLine is confidential to a point- while we will never share conversations had on the lines, we are mandatory reporters. If a young person is unable to agree to safety for themselves or another person, or if abuse is occurring, YouthLine contacts other agencies to ensure the best support and safety for the young person in crisis. » https://www.theyouthline.org/

988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline

The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline is available 24/7. The Lifeline is for people in any type of behavioral health crisis, such as mental health-related distress, thoughts of suicide or self-harm, or substance use crisis. People can get help by: calling 988, texting 988, or chatting online. » 988lifeline.org

Oregon School-Based Health Centers

Oregon SBHCs are in schools or on school grounds and provide medical care, behavioral health services and, often, dental services. Because of these easily accessible services, school-aged youth have an equal opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. » List of School-Based Health Center sites

Oregon School-Based Mental Health Program

SBMH providers employed to provide services under this program are master's level therapists or qualified mental health professionals and licensed under state law to serve school-age children. Since 2014, legislative funding has allowed Oregon Health Authority (OHA) the opportunity to expand critically needed mental health services to 74 schools across 17 counties. » https://www.oregon.gov/oha/HSD/BH-Child-Family/Pages/Schools.aspx
