The Oregon Healthy Transitions (OR-HT) project will be implemented in Douglas and Lane Counties, Oregon. The project combines evidence-based practices and innovative, empirically-supported approaches as a means of improving well-being and functioning among youth and young adults. Specifically, the project focuses on young people ages 16-25 who experience serious mental disorders and who are disconnected from services and supports (i.e, currently not accessing the continuum of care) or at risk of disconnection. The two counties were chosen because they are socio-demographically representative of rural Oregon generally, and also because both have recently experienced high-profile traumatic events that particularly affect youth and young adults: a cluster of suicides in Lane, and the mass shooting at the Umpqua Community College in Douglas. OR-HT has four overarching goals, each with a series of specific, measurable objectives: 1) Improve stakeholder collaboration and coordination at the county and state levels so as to more effectively and efficiently serve the population; 2) Increase the capacity of the local behavioral health continuum to engage and retain young people who are disconnected/at risk of disconnection, and to support their positive development and sense of well-being; 3) Improve the quality and availability of mental health services/supports, and the consistency of service approach, across the continuum; and 4) Increase the extent to which the system is responsive to young people’s needs and perspectives across all levels (service, agency, system). In collaboration with Youth ERA, a youth peer-run organization, OR-HT will expand outreach to underserved young people in the two counties using a variety of strategies, with a focus on social media, and mobile and web-based apps. OR-HT will also expand the use of three “core” evidence-based practices—Wraparound, Coordinated Specialty Care for first-episode psychosis, and Individualized Placement and Support—while also enhancing the skills of staff for engaging young adults by implementing training in Achieve My Plan (for care coordination staff), AMP+ (for young adult peer support providers) and feedback-informed treatment. At full capacity OR-HT aims to serve at least 80 young people annually through the core EBPs, and at least 356 during the lifetime of the project. To lay the groundwork for project replication and sustainability across the state, OR-HT will collaborate with youth/young adult advisory groups and System of Care governance structures at the county and state levels, using these as forums for addressing policy and funding challenges that arise during the project.
