People experiencing a psychiatric emergency can’t always get the help they need, when they need it. Emergency Departments are crowded and inadequate for treating these issues. Too often mental health issues go untreated, which can lead to homelessness, loss of employment, damaged relationships, incarceration and suicide. It's time to change that.
The right care at the right time
As the first behavioral health center of its kind in the region, the Unity Center for Behavioral Health is becoming a national model for providing compassionate mental health care in times of crisis.
Through an unprecedented collaboration between Adventist Health, Kaiser Permanente, Legacy Health and Oregon Health & Science University, we are a 24-hour behavioral and mental health services center located in the greater Portland metropolitan area.
We provide immediate psychiatric care and a path to recovery for people experiencing a mental health crisis. Our care navigators create and coordinate ongoing care plans for continuing treatment, with the goal that every individual walks out the door with a recovery plan already in motion. With this dual approach, we offer true hope for a future free from mental and behavioral health trauma for our patients.
We're transforming lives! Learn more in the Unity first year report.
