This department that provides mental health servcies will get nine more full time workers next year.

 

Scott Johnson is the head of the Behavioral Health Department.

 

"There seems to be broad support to add more mental health services that are deemed very important.  This is also a continuing increase in the people on the Oregon Health Plan and that is a very good thing.  I think the efforts in our state are very progressive in the changes in the health care system."

 

Johnson says this change reflects an increased emphasis on mental health services in the state and nation.
