Support and Services for Specific Communities

We know that when it comes to mental health and crisis support needs, one size does not fit all. We offer services for specific communities across Oregon including Service Members and Veterans, those experiencing the impacts of racism, youth, and seniors.

People Experiencing Racism

Racial Equity Support Line

Available Monday-Friday, 10am-7pm Pacific Time

The Racial Equity Support Line is led and staffed by people with lived experience of racism. We offer support to those who are feeling the emotional impacts of race-based violence and microaggressions, as well as the emotional impacts of immigration struggles and other cross-cultural issues.

Many of us experience racism every day. Unfortunately, we live in a culture where race-based bias, violence, and discrimination happen often. From workplaces to housing to healthcare, we know that our communities are not getting the same kind of treatment as others.
