Child & Family Services

Cascadia provides outpatient services to children and their families, with a focus on strengthening families from diverse backgrounds.

Millions of American children live with depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, or a host of other mental health challenges.

Counseling helps improve skills for coping with life’s stressors and challenges and develops a sense of empowerment. It can also pinpoint specific issues while learning new ways to interact as a family. By working with you, we can help set individual and family goals and help you achieve them.

Our goal is to ensure family health and safety, as well as parent engagement in services.

Specialty Mental Health

Update due to COVID-19 (posted 3/23/20)

Clients in these programs have high acuity and need community supports to stay safe. While the sites are currently closed, program staff will still provide phone support to ensure clients are able to get medications, medical treatment and basic needs are being met. Face-to-face services will be reserved for the highest acuity and those who cannot be reached by phone. Referrals will be reviewed and evaluated to determine the safest way to screen and assess each new potential client. 

Cascadia’s Behavioral Healthcare’s Forensic Assertive Community Treatment (FACT) program assists individuals who experience serious mental health challenges and need special guidance in major life areas such as employment, relationships, housing, and physical health and wellness.

Our program is contracted with Multnomah County and Health Share of Oregon, and assists individuals who experience the most severe symptoms of mental illness and the greatest level of functional impairment, and have not been successful in traditional outpatient, clinic-based services. Individuals appropriate for the program have had frequent hospitalizations or crisis services; experience chronic homelessness and inability to maintain a safe or stable living situation; and have significant impairment performing basic daily living tasks.  Additionally, they have had repeated criminal justice involvement, such as frequent police contact, arrests, and detention or incarceration, and have been assessed as a moderate to high risk to re-offend. The program serves up to 45 clients.

Cascadia’s FACT program incorporates an Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) approach with a team of psychiatry, nursing, case management, addiction counseling, peer wellness support, and vocational rehabilitation professionals. ACT is an evidence-based practice and has been noted to have effective client outreach, engagement, and outcomes since it integrates services within a community setting.
