Meet our New Executive Director, Sharon Kuehn

Mental Health America of Oregon is pleased to announce that Sharon Kuehn has joined our staff as Executive Director. Sharon is a veteran of the peer recovery movement and brings two decades of community organizing and change leadership from her extensive advocacy and professional experience in California.


Most recently, Sharon worked for Peers Envisioning & Engaging in Recovery Services (P.E.E.R.S.) as the Alameda County Social Inclusion Campaign Program Manager and Project Advisor to the Working Well Together Technical Assistance Center. Sharon works with the Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery as an Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator. Over the years, Ms. Kuehn has developed numerous recovery and peer support programs and trainings in California, including The College Connection, SPIRIT, and Partners in Hope. As the principle consultant for Wellness Recovery Educators, she has provided technical assistance to counties and organizations on recovery practices and peer employment, always grounded in the values of the C/S/X movement.

Sharon’s passion and abilities are a natural fit for MHAO. We look forward to a successful new year with Sharon Kuehn joining our talented and committed MHAO/Peerlink team.
