Community Counseling Solutions
The history of Community Counseling Solutions is long and colorful. In fact, it extends all the way back to the 1970’s. It was at that time that the State of Oregon created what they called local mental health authorities. These authorities were actually the counties of Oregon, and the state decided that each county could operate a community mental health program itself, or it could contract with a private not-for-profit mental health agency. So, Morrow County instituted its own community mental health program called Morrow County Mental Health. In those early days, Morrow County temporarily paired with Wheeler County and at one time Gilliam County, but it wasn’t until 1996 that they joined for good. The agency changed its name to Morrow County Behavioral Health to avoid the stigma associated with the term “mental health.”
Mental Health Services
It can be very scary to go to a counselor the first time. It can be hard to face ourselves, to open up to another, and even to just take that first step to address the things that we are struggling with.
School Based Health Centers
Offering primary care services, Immunizations, mental health counseling.
Developmental Disability Case Management
Managing all the details that are part of life for someone with a developmental disability can be discouraging and overwhelming at best, and impossible at worst.
We work intensly with individuals to overcome their addictions to alcohol and/or other drugs.
