The Pacific Psychology and Comprehensive Health Clinics are now accepting Health Share of Oregon plans for mental health services for residents of the Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties.

The PCH Clinics treat adults, couples, children and adolescents and families with a variety of mental health concerns. “Our clinics are behavioral health homes and integrated care clinics providing mental health and primary care services to diverse communities, marginalized groups, and underserved individuals across the lifespan,” director Cathy Moonshine said.

PCH Clinic services are client-centered, strength-based, culturally responsive, trauma-informed, holistic, and recovery-oriented. The mental health service array includes psychotherapy, case management, medication evaluations and management along with neuropsychological and psychological assessment. Primary care services include complementary and natural medicine. Clients can also access our physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech language therapists.

The PCH Clinics are a service offering of Pacific University’s School of Professional Psychology, and administered by faculty and staff from the school as well as the university’s schools of Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Communication Sciences and Disorders. Pacific University also partners with the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) to add clinical rotations of Naturopathic Doctors. Moonshine said the clinics provide services to individual adults and youths, as well as families, conducting nearly 10,000 client sessions annually.

Consistent with the triple aims of the Affordable Care Act, integrated care is considered the most responsive, efficient, and effective form of medical and mental health services.

“We engage in interprofessional collaboration and care integration at the clinics,” Moonshine added. “Our services take into account medical, functional, physical, and other health-related issues when treating mental health concerns; patient advocacy; and referrals to specialty services.”

Located in downtown Portland (1411 SW Morrison, Suite 310) and downtown Hillsboro (222 SE 8th, Suite 212), both locations are easily accessible by Tri-Met. The PCH Clinics are open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 9 to 5 and Saturday from 9 to 3.
