JEFFERSON COUNTY Mental Health PROGRAM
850 SW 4th Street Suite 302
Madras, OR 97741
We are the community mental health provider for all of Jefferson County. Our mental health clinical teams include mental health clinicians, case managers, wraparound coordinators, skills trainers. Psychiatry, including evaluation, medication management, and nursing support is also an integral part of our mental health clinical services. We offer several mental health treatment groups, including weekly gender-specific DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) groups. Access to mental health services is rapid as we have an Open Access clinic Monday-Thursday; we can also schedule assessment appointments, when needed.
