Even before COVID-19, Oregon’s mental health system was failing its children. Now kids are isolated at home and families are facing the worst economic and health crises in a generation, driving up rates of mental illness. Already-fragile mental health care providers are additionally poised for deep state budget cuts. This event will explore how stakeholders, advocates and policymakers can come together to protect and assist vulnerable youth.
