The Addictions and Mental Health Division is currently engaged in an effort to implement demonstration pilot projects, which focus on services, management, and financial integration. The Report of the President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health identified the need for better coordination between primary care and mental health care and called for dissemination of evidence-based models to improve care at the interface of general medicine and mental health.

Mental Health America of Oregon is proud to host this innovative dialogue.
