Federal Mental Health Clinic Funds Headed Our Way

Sen. Jeff Merkley
D-Oregon

Sen. Ron Wyden
D-Oregon


U.S. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley Announce $7 Million for Oregon Community Health Centers statewide –

Resources will help clinics in Klamath Falls, Hood River, Roseburg, Medford, Eugene, Newport, Wheeler, Bandon, Salem, Prineville, Grants Pass, Oregon City, Tillamook, Cornelius, Boardman, Enterprise, Corvallis and Portland

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley today announced that 25 community health centers throughout Oregon will get more than $7 million in federal resources to expand access to treatment for substance abuse and mental health treatment.

“Oregonians battling substance abuse and mental health challenges need access to quality care throughout our state,” Wyden said. “This federal support provides essential help for Oregon clinics to bolster that care for patients and provide their loved ones the peace of mind that good treatment is available within their local communities.”

“Every American deserves comprehensive health care, and that includes substance abuse and mental health treatment,” Merkley said. “I’ve heard from health care leaders across the state about the integral role community health centers play in Oregonians’ lives, and these grants will support these critical community providers.”

“This award will dramatically strengthen our team’s ability to combat the opioid epidemic, bringing additional evidence-based treatment options to our patients and their families here in Wallowa County,” said Dr. Elizabeth Powers, Innovations Director of the Winding Waters clinic in Enterprise.

“We are so grateful for this critical support for our services,” said Kim Oveson, La Clinica’s behavioral health director. “For people with substance use and mental health challenges, sometimes a standard medical visit isn’t enough to address concerns. They need more services, and this will help us achieve overall health goals.”
