  4. Honor equity and inclusion to ensure all communities and individuals have access to excellent and culturally appropriate care.

Compass Pointing North


The Tri-County Behavioral Health Providers Association (TCBHPA) was formed in early 2012 in response to federal and state healthcare reform resulting from the Affordable Care Act. Since its inception, TCBHPA has been the avenue for the region’s community-based mental health and addictions providers to work together to strengthen our system of care for greater community health. Our approximately 32 organization members include behavioral health providers of all sizes that specialize in providing access to healthcare for all children, youth and adults with mental health, addiction and culturally specific needs.

Strategic Initiatives

Current strategic efforts include a focus on Integrated Care and Care Coordination, Workforce Recruitment and Retention, Equity and Inclusion and Outcome Based Care. Committees meet regularly to advance these and other issues—updates can be found here.


Additionally, members come together at regular Membership Meetings to advance committee issues, address new and current topics, hear from outside speakers and share information. CareOregon, Health Share and County representatives join us for a portion of these membership meetings on alternating months.
