The Oregon Housing Conference is an interdisciplinary gathering of property owners and housing developers, lawmakers and public administrators, public health, law enforcement and community leaders, tenants and neighbors to discuss the ongoing Oregon housing crisis. The goal of the conference is to educate the community and increase opportunities for low income housing in Oregon, with a special interest in housing for people in recovery from mental illness and addiction.
The next Northwest Law & Mental Health Conference will be announced in May 2021.
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown ordered no events over 250 persons to be held in Oregon on Friday, March 13 , and later expanded her Stay At Home order. This required we postpone the Northwest Law & Mental Health Conference – scheduled for March 13. The conference came fully online in May 2020 and closed at the end of July 2020.
Recorded sessions of the Northwest Law & Mental Health Conference are now available online and available for all persons to watch.
Continuing education credit for the conference through the Oregon State Bar, the Oregon Department of Public Standards and Safety Training, and the NASW Oregon was available to those who registered for the conference. Testing for NASW Oregon has concluded.
