What's Happening at Behavioral Health Services?

There are many changes taking place at PeaceHealth's Behavioral Health Services--including a new inpatient unit due to open this fall and the launch and expansion of several key programs. Here's your guide to what's happening with Behavioral Health: 

Transition Team: This team (pictured here), which provides intensive, community-based behavioral health support, is relocating from Lane County Behavioral Health on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to PeaceHealth Medical Group, University District, Suite 540. In December, the program will move to the second floor of the Support Services Building. Wednesday lunches, one of the programs biggest regular gatherings, will be held in Suite 130.

Young Adult Hub: This program, which provides intensive community-based supports to young adults (14-24) with significant behavioral health issues, is moving from Suite 540 to Suite 570 at PHMG. A “hangout space”–an open area for youth to interact and socialize–will be located in Suite 540 when it opens Aug. 1.

Early Assessment and Support Alliance: This program, providing trans-disciplinary treatment to young people experiencing a first episode of psychosis, moves from Suite 540 to Suite 570 at PHMG, UD.

Health Technology Project: This research project will offer technology-based behavioral health supports to people with psychosis after discharge from acute inpatient care. It will also be located in Suite 570 at PHMG, UD.

Behavioral Health Primary Care: This new clinic will be located in Suite 540 at PHMG, University District​. It also opens Aug. 1.

Please be aware of these changes should there be confusion on the part of patients or colleagues.
