OHA Travels to Bend to Get Feedback on Mental Health Services


The OHA was in Bend Wednesday to help get feedback from communities about what they need from the state.

 

Jeff Emrick, the Deputy Director for Addictions and Mental Health for OHA, says  their goal is to provide better care at lower cost.

 

"It's not really lack of funding, it's more how to aim that money, point it at the right kinds of things.  Our legislature has done a good job of securing funding for local communities to provide care. So we want to know how to take the money we already have and point it at the right thing."

 

THe OHA will be traveling to Seaside, Salem, Roseburg and Pendleton in the next month to get more input.
