Safe + Strong Helpline, in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority, is an emotional support and resource referral line that can assist anyone who is struggling and seeking support. Callers do not need to be in a crisis to contact this line.

Many of us are juggling concerns about wildfires and smoke, COVID-19, political unrest, financial instability, and more, in addition to the everyday things we personally struggle with.

Disasters can leave us feeling increased anxiety, worry, anger, or depression. In these challenging times, we provide emotional support, mental health triage, drug and alcohol counseling, or just connection with a person who cares.

If you or a loved one is feeling worried, upset, or overwhelmed, give us a call. Our call counselor will listen, assess your needs, and problem-solve with referral to community services and resources if needed.

WEBINARS
Join Centre for Mental Health as we mark
World Mental Health Day

Free Online Event

Thursday, October 7, 2021 – 5:00 to 6:00 PM PDT

Join the Centre as we mark World Mental Health Day by putting the spotlight on mental health inequalities. A year on from our ground-breaking report Mental Health For All?, we look at the hard facts surrounding inequality in mental health: why some people are so much more likely to face mental health difficulties, or struggle to get the help they deserve.

As a society, we are more aware of the mental health difficulties so many of us face — but we’re not always as aware of the role inequality plays in our experience of mental health problems, services, or getting better.

Hear from Andy Bell (Deputy CEO, Centre for Mental Health) on the key findings of our research, as well as Poppy Jaman (Trustee, Centre for Mental Health and Chief Executive, City Mental Health Alliance) and Rose Ssali (Chief Executive, Support and Action for Women’s Network).

While the scale of the problem can feel overwhelming, this webinar will explain both the reality and the solutions for truly creating good mental health for all.

This online event is free to attend. Please sign up for a ticket, and we will email you with a Zoom link one week before the event.

Master JianFeng Chen is from the Fujian province of China. Inspired by his teachers and experiences, he wanted to bring traditional training of internal/external martial arts to the people of America. In China, martial arts is deeply imbedded in everyday life. Energy work, through Qigong and Tai Chi are often not stressed enough, so the full benefits of practice are not realized. His goal is to bring awareness of your breath, your energy, your movements and how it affects yourself and others so everyone can achieve balance and thus happiness and health in their lives.At the age of 8, JianFeng, joined the Junior Athletic School of Zhangzhou to begin his formal martial arts training. At the age of 11, he was selected to join the Fujian State Athletic Wushu Unit, that is internationally renowned for winning championships, especially in Tai Chi.

About Master JianFeng

Master JianFeng Chen is from the Fujian province of China. Inspired by his teachers and experiences, he wanted to bring traditional training of internal/external martial arts to the people of America. In China, martial arts is deeply imbedded in everyday life. Energy work, through Qigong and Tai Chi are often not stressed enough, so the full benefits of practice are not realized. His goal is to bring awareness of your breath, your energy, your movements and how it affects yourself and others so everyone can achieve balance and thus happiness and health in their lives.At the age of 8, JianFeng, joined the Junior Athletic School of Zhangzhou to begin his formal martial arts training. At the age of 11, he was selected to join the Fujian State Athletic Wushu Unit, that is internationally renowned for winning championships, especially in Tai Chi. His teachers were Grand Masters and World Champions in Tai Chi and Wushu.

Join Centre for Mental Health as we mark
World Mental Health Day

Free Online Event

Thursday, October 7, 2021 – 5:00 to 6:00 PM PDT

Join the Centre as we mark World Mental Health Day by putting the spotlight on mental health inequalities. A year on from our ground-breaking report Mental Health For All?, we look at the hard facts surrounding inequality in mental health: why some people are so much more likely to face mental health difficulties, or struggle to get the help they deserve.

As a society, we are more aware of the mental health difficulties so many of us face — but we’re not always as aware of the role inequality plays in our experience of mental health problems, services, or getting better.

Hear from Andy Bell (Deputy CEO, Centre for Mental Health) on the key findings of our research, as well as Poppy Jaman (Trustee, Centre for Mental Health and Chief Executive, City Mental Health Alliance) and Rose Ssali (Chief Executive, Support and Action for Women’s Network).

While the scale of the problem can feel overwhelming, this webinar will explain both the reality and the solutions for truly creating good mental health for all.

This online event is free to attend. Please sign up for a ticket, and we will email you with a Zoom link one week before the event.

WEBINARS
Join Centre for Mental Health as we mark
World Mental Health Day

Free Online Event

Thursday, October 7, 2021 – 5:00 to 6:00 PM PDT

Join the Centre as we mark World Mental Health Day by putting the spotlight on mental health inequalities. A year on from our ground-breaking report Mental Health For All?, we look at the hard facts surrounding inequality in mental health: why some people are so much more likely to face mental health difficulties, or struggle to get the help they deserve.

As a society, we are more aware of the mental health difficulties so many of us face — but we’re not always as aware of the role inequality plays in our experience of mental health problems, services, or getting better.

Hear from Andy Bell (Deputy CEO, Centre for Mental Health) on the key findings of our research, as well as Poppy Jaman (Trustee, Centre for Mental Health and Chief Executive, City Mental Health Alliance) and Rose Ssali (Chief Executive, Support and Action for Women’s Network).

While the scale of the problem can feel overwhelming, this webinar will explain both the reality and the solutions for truly creating good mental health for all.

This online event is free to attend. Please sign up for a ticket, and we will email you with a Zoom link one week before the event.

Safe + Strong Helpline, in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority, is an emotional support and resource referral line that can assist anyone who is struggling and seeking support. Callers do not need to be in a crisis to contact this line.

Many of us are juggling concerns about wildfires and smoke, COVID-19, political unrest, financial instability, and more, in addition to the everyday things we personally struggle with.

Disasters can leave us feeling increased anxiety, worry, anger, or depression. In these challenging times, we provide emotional support, mental health triage, drug and alcohol counseling, or just connection with a person who cares.

If you or a loved one is feeling worried, upset, or overwhelmed, give us a call. Our call counselor will listen, assess your needs, and problem-solve with referral to community services and resources if needed.

His goal is to bring awareness of your breath, your energy, your movements and how it affects yourself and others so everyone can achieve balance and thus happiness and health in their lives.At the age of 8, JianFeng, joined the Junior Athletic School of Zhangzhou to begin his formal martial arts training. At the age of 11, he was selected to join the Fujian State Athletic Wushu Unit, that is internationally renowned for winning championships, especially in Tai Chi.

Why choose PS4PSS?

PS4PSS can help reduce compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma, secondary traumatic stress, moral distress, and burnout.

PS4PSS provides trauma informed support that is person-centered, goal-oriented, solution-based, and time-limited.

To learn more about PS4PSS watch the youtube video here:  https://youtu.be/DoqLYY6outQ


From the Facilitator

“What I Like About about PS4PSS is that it is exactly a parallel process of what I have done when standing alongside peers who I have worked with during community partnerships. This is the process of holding space to encourage, empower, and empathize.

I know what it means to do this work. I know that my own recovery has been both positively and negatively impacted by this work. Now I know that while there can be a “cost of caring,” as Charles Figley would say, there are also tools that mitigate exposure to trauma. The most important action that I can take is to create a space for my fellow peer workforce, a space to be heard, a space to be held, and a space to not be judged. PS4PSS is a space where healing continues to happen – just like what our peer workforce does every day for their peers.

I am excited because this is where I think the talk and the walk truly align. We all have great strength to be doing this work – to have survived lives that led us to this movement. We have learned new ways to cope and to create. I am excited PS4PSS equally values our strength and our vulnerability.”

-Kristin Griffey, Compassion Fatigue Specialist and Trainer, Community and Workplace Traumatologist, Wellness Coach, and Peer Wellness Specialist

Help is free and available 24/7. Language interpreters are available.

Safe + Strong Helpline, in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority, is an emotional support and resource referral line that can assist anyone who is struggling and seeking support. Callers do not need to be in a crisis to contact this line.

Many of us are juggling concerns about wildfires and smoke, COVID-19, political unrest, financial instability, and more, in addition to the everyday things we personally struggle with.

Disasters can leave us feeling increased anxiety, worry, anger, or depression. In these challenging times, we provide emotional support, mental health triage, drug and alcohol counseling, or just connection with a person who cares.

If you or a loved one is feeling worried, upset, or overwhelmed, give us a call. Our call counselor will listen, assess your needs, and problem-solve with referral to community services and resources if needed.

His goal is to bring awareness of your breath, your energy, your movements and how it affects yourself and others so everyone can achieve balance and thus happiness and health in their lives.At the age of 8, JianFeng, joined the Junior Athletic School of Zhangzhou to begin his formal martial arts training. At the age of 11, he was selected to join the Fujian State Athletic Wushu Unit, that is internationally renowned for winning championships, especially in Tai Chi. His teachers were Grand Masters and World Champions in Tai Chi and Wushu.

Safe + Strong Helpline, in partnership with the Oregon Health Authority, is an emotional support and resource referral line that can assist anyone who is struggling and seeking support. Callers do not need to be in a crisis to contact this line.

Many of us are juggling concerns about wildfires and smoke, COVID-19, political unrest, financial instability, and more, in addition to the everyday things we personally struggle with.

Disasters can leave us feeling increased anxiety, worry, anger, or depression. In these challenging times, we provide emotional support, mental health triage, drug and alcohol counseling, or just connection with a person who cares.

If you or a loved one is feeling worried, upset, or overwhelmed, give us a call. Our call counselor will listen, assess your needs, and problem-solve with referral to community services and resources if needed.

About Master JianFeng

Master JianFeng Chen is from the Fujian province of China. Inspired by his teachers and experiences, he wanted to bring traditional training of internal/external martial arts to the people of America. In China, martial arts is deeply imbedded in everyday life. Energy work, through Qigong and Tai Chi are often not stressed enough, so the full benefits of practice are not realized. His goal is to bring awareness of your breath, your energy, your movements and how it affects yourself and others so everyone can achieve balance and thus happiness and health in their lives.At the age of 8, JianFeng, joined the Junior Athletic School of Zhangzhou to begin his formal martial arts training. At the age of 11, he was selected to join the Fujian State Athletic Wushu Unit, that is internationally renowned for winning championships, especially in Tai Chi. His teachers were Grand Masters and World Champions in Tai Chi and Wushu.

From the Facilitator

“What I Like About about PS4PSS is that it is exactly a parallel process of what I have done when standing alongside peers who I have worked with during community partnerships. This is the process of holding space to encourage, empower, and empathize.

I know what it means to do this work. I know that my own recovery has been both positively and negatively impacted by this work. Now I know that while there can be a “cost of caring,” as Charles Figley would say, there are also tools that mitigate exposure to trauma. The most important action that I can take is to create a space for my fellow peer workforce, a space to be heard, a space to be held, and a space to not be judged. PS4PSS is a space where healing continues to happen – just like what our peer workforce does every day for their peers.

I am excited because this is where I think the talk and the walk truly align. We all have great strength to be doing this work – to have survived lives that led us to this movement. We have learned new ways to cope and to create. I am excited PS4PSS equally values our strength and our vulnerability.”

-Kristin Griffey, Compassion Fatigue Specialist and Trainer, Community and Workplace Traumatologist, Wellness Coach, and Peer Wellness Specialist
