Behavioral Health Initiative 

The challenge:

The World Health Organization reports that one in four people in the world will be affected by mental disorders at some point in their lives. Oregon has the highest rate of mental illness of any state in the country, according to the Oregon Chapter of The National Alliance on Mental Illness. Asante is addressing this critical need in our region.

The solution:

Connecting those in need with treatment options is Asante’s goal. Early work on the Asante Behavioral Health Initiative has set the stage for one of the most transformational mental health projects in our region. Included in this initiative is a new Behavioral Health Unit, systemwide implementation of the Sanctuary Model® and the expansion of community partnerships.
