OUR Mission:

Mental Health & Addiction Association of Oregon is an inclusive peer-run organization dedicated to self-direction, honoring the voice of lived experience.

OUR Vision:

Mental Health & Addiction Association of Oregon is committed to promoting self-directed recovery and wellness for all individuals. We honor lived experiences. We support people wherever they are on their journey, free from judgment, or agenda.

We support these aims through education, advocacy, recovery, peer services, training, technical assistance, community collaboration, and through developing the peer workforce and leadership.

Our Team:


In 2019, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) celebrates the 30th anniversary of National Recovery Month (Recovery Month), marking three decades of spreading the message that treatment is effective, and people can and do recover—every day. Through the years, Recovery Month has promoted and supported new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the strong and proud recovery community, and dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible.

Statewide Peer Workforce Needs Assessment by MHAAO

We are offering two surveys: one for the Peer Workforce and one for Peer Employers. We hope that the final report will be shared far and wide to inform policies and promote systemic change.

We would like to thank our Steering Committee, Advisory and Evaluation Committee, and everyone who gave feedback during the process of creating this assessment. We are grateful to the Office of Equity and Inclusion with the Traditional Health Worker Program for sharing their time and resources with us to make this happen!
