Community Partners

South Lane Mental Health plays an integral role in the community's healthcare continuum and social services network. We also take our role as a good community partner seriously and work collaboratively wherever possible. We have been involved in a number of projects with the City of Cottage Grove, Cottage Grove Police Department, Cottage Grove Community Medical Center, South Lane Medical Group, and with a variety of local businesses and churches.

South Lane Mental Health contracts with Trillium Community Health Plans to provide mental health services to people who have the Oregon Health Plan. State and county funds also help pay for services for those who lack health insurance or are in crisis.

Since 1993, South Lane Mental Health has assisted individuals experiencing psychiatric emergencies at Cottage Grove Hospital. An agency counselor evaluates the situation and provides crisis care. Over the years, South Lane Mental Health has diverted hundreds of patients from psychiatric hospitalizations to outpatient treatment in the community.

Cottage Grove's First Presbyterian Church is also a key community partner. Not only does the Church lease the Bohemia Residential Community care home and apartments to South Lane Mental Health at no charge, but also a church member sits on the agency's board of directors.

South Lane Mental Health also works with other local non-profit agencies including Head Start, South Lane Family Relief Nursery, Great Days Early Education Center, and South Lane School District.
