COVID-19 Community Counseling Program
Washington County has a new COVID-19 supportive counseling program. The COVID-19 Community Counseling Program (CCCP) is a partnership between Washington County, Lifeworks NW, Western Psychological, Asian Health and Service Center, and Lutheran Community Services NW. CCCP provides support to Washington County community members who need help related to the pandemic. Core services include:
- Supportive counseling with an emphasis on developing coping skills and resilience.
- Support in understanding personal reactions, planning action steps, and developing solutions to resolve losses and overcome difficulties.
- Referral and connection to longer-term behavioral health care if needed.
Services are provided at no charge. Linguistically and culturally specific services are also available.
How to get help:
To request an appointment, please email COVIDCounseling@co.washington.or.us or call Washington County Behavioral Health at 503-846-4528.
This is not a crisis line, and you will not be able to speak with a counselor right away. The CCCP is also meant to be short-term assistance (a few sessions per individual).
If you need immediate help, call the Washington County Crisis Line at 503-291-9111. Call 9-1-1 for life threatening emergencies. Visit the crisis services webpage for more resources.
