We need more beds!
The Treatment Advocacy Center recommends at least 50 inpatient beds per 100,000 people.

In nearly 5 years, the Oregon Health Authority has failed to approve the Willamette Valley Behavioral Health facility based on flawed assessment of the challenges and needs facing our community.

OHA needs to hear from community members that their analysis is wrong and that real Oregonians are suffering.

Together, we can change the status quo and demand Willamette mental health action.
