Promote mental health. Strengthen community resilience.
“From Coast to Forest: Building on Community Strengths to Promote Mental Health and Reduce Opioid Abuse in Rural Oregon” is led by OSU Extension Family and Community Health, the OSU Center for Health Innovation and the College of Public Health and Human Sciences.
The Coast to Forest initiative builds upon existing state and community strengths and resources. This includes a growing network of community health workers, radio stations covering communities' health and wellness, community-level partnerships and an expanding Mental Health First Aid network. Funding for these state and local initiatives was made available through the Rural Health and Safety Education Program of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
