Two useful web sites listing important information about clinical services and policy making for Multnomah County’s mental health system have been recently updated.
The Cascadia site, managed by Jim Clay, is somewhat reduced in size from the former Cascadia sites, has a clean and simple presentation, is easy to navigate and provides some general information about the organization. The former site was taken down after the resignations of several board members and senior staff. The new site lists the remaining board members and senior staff as well as contact information and job openings.
OLD – Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare – from June 11 2008
NEW – Adult Mental Health and Substance Abuse (Advisory Council) – often called AMHSA
The AMHSA site, managed by the Multnomah County Mental Health Division staff, gives the times, dates and locations of an important public advisory meeting. It also includes links to the agendas and minutes from past meetings. In June the Mental Health Association of Portland noted to County staff the site had not been updated in over six months and all logistical information on the site was inaccurate. County staff responded within a month to update the site.
OLD – Adult Mental Health and Substance Abuse (Advisory Council) – it’s prior substantial update in October of 2006.
