The beautiful city of Portland is located in Multnomah County and is divided by the Willamette River. Views from the city display majestic Mount Hood to the southeast and Mount Saint Helens to the north. The city is home to over 593,0001 full-time residents, and the region boasts many schools of higher education and several high-tech companies, including Intel. Among the colleges located in the Portland area are Oregon Health & Science University, Reed College, Lewis & Clark College, and the National College of Natural Medicine. Known for its liberal views, coffee, and microbreweries, the city attracts visitors who enjoy the burgeoning restaurant and entertainment scenes.Located within driving distance of the ocean and the mountains, Portland is a playground for outdoor enthusiasts.

 

Mental Health Statistics
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reported that 20.7% of Portland-area adults used illicit drugs between 2005 and 2010, and nearly 8% of adults in the region reported using prescription pain pills for nonmedical purposes. Substance abuse issues were reported by 11.2% of adults and depression in 7.1% of adults2. According to the city’s Behavioral Health Unit, 202 area residents took their own lives between April of 2011 and June 2013. This represents a rate of nearly 35 people per 100,000 and an average of more than seven suicides in the area every month3.

 

Multnomah County Focuses on Families, Children and Addiction
Addiction rates in the Portland area are higher than state and national averages. In an effort to combat this epidemic, Multnomah County has focused attention on mental health and addiction for all area residents. They strive to retain culturally sensitive and competent modes of care that are accessible to all of those with mental healthcare needs. By integrating community resources, outpatient providers, inpatient care, crisis care, and transitional housing, the Multnomah County Mental Health and Addiction Services (MHASD) aims to reach all residents in need.

 

Their addiction program addresses all types of addiction, including drug, alcohol, and gambling addiction for teens, young adults, and adults. In addition, the Early Assessment and Support Alliance (EASA) works with young people to identify those at risk for psychosis. This early intervention service focuses on awareness so that treatment can be provided when the first symptoms appear. The support arm of EASA empowers, educates, and encourages clients. The success of the program is evident and a large percentage of enrolled clients are able to find employment as a result.

 

MHASD operates a system of care for children, families, and adults in need. Each branch of this system provides unique resources tailored to address the concerns of those it targets. Through counseling, addiction services, community outreach, respite care, inpatient psychiatric care, parenting classes, vocational assistance, violence prevention, and other programs, these systems of care work together to ensure that mental health concerns are identified, addressed,and treated. MHASD also helps uninsured individuals access resources through Cover Oregon, a statewide insurance program for qualified recipients4.
