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.

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach OSPO: Older Adult Telephone Support – Daily @ Phone
Jan 24 all-day

 

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Telephone Support with Pandemic Go Teams (mobile/clinical) @ Clackamas County – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Jan 24 all-day

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

Excerpt(s) from https://www.clackamas.us/coronavirus/mental-health:

Mental Health Connection

Call 503-655-8585. We’re here for you.

Hope and connection are important in these trying times. While the Clackamas County Mental Health Center is not open to walk-ins, the phone number is available 24/7. This number is not just a crisis line, the staff there can provide support for anyone who might be worried or anxious about what is going on.

    Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.
  • Take a break from the news
    Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.

    Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced mealsexercise regularlyget plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind
    Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others
    While we may not be able to have conversations face to face, we can still reach out and check on each other with the use of technology. Connect with others via phone or text. Use platforms like Facetime or Zoom for video chat or download apps like Marco Polo – a free face-to-face video messaging app – that helps people stay close.
  • Talk about your concerns with a Peer Support Specialist
    This is a person who uses their lived experience of recovery from mental illness and/or addiction, plus skills learned in formal training, to deliver services to promote mind-body recovery and resiliency.

This is a unique time that leaves many parents questioning what to say to their children and how to address the possible emotional fallout from this situation. Here are some suggestions on how to help children cope.

Remember, call the Clackamas County crisis and support line at 503-655-8585 or your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row. You are not alone in this. We are here to support you.

Excerpt(s):

Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline!

Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day.

No appointments needed! We are here for you!

Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer.

Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call! David Romprey Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392

Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.

Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has lead many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.


We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.


Any Oregonian needing support may call our David Romprey Oregon Warmline to speak to a trained peer. We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ any one to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this David Romprey Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care.

About PRPSN

The Friendship Line, now known as the Warm Line, received its first call in 1999. The purpose of the line was to share experiences, rather than deal with crises. It continues to operate 365 days a year and is staffed entirely by consumers who provide and listening ears to callers during the hours when the services they rely on for help are closed.

Hacienda of Hope opened its doors in 2014 as one the first Peer-Run Respite Care Homes in Los Angeles County. Funded by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, Hacienda of Hope serves guests eighteen years and older who are in psychiatric distress but not a danger to self or others. During their temporary stay guests receive support with activities of daily living, attend peer-run support groups, participate in extracurricular and recreational activities and are linked to outside services and natural community supports.

In 2015 PRPSN was recognized by Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health as its own legal entity and expanded its breadth and depth as a contract provider to include: step-down, Peer support/peer counseling/peer mentoring services, alternative crisis support, bridging and support services, workforce training and development, wellness centers/client run centers, and innovation services.

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.

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach OSPO: Older Adult Telephone Support – Daily @ Phone
Jan 25 all-day

 

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Telephone Support with Pandemic Go Teams (mobile/clinical) @ Clackamas County – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Jan 25 all-day

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

Excerpt(s) from https://www.clackamas.us/coronavirus/mental-health:

Mental Health Connection

Call 503-655-8585. We’re here for you.

Hope and connection are important in these trying times. While the Clackamas County Mental Health Center is not open to walk-ins, the phone number is available 24/7. This number is not just a crisis line, the staff there can provide support for anyone who might be worried or anxious about what is going on.

  • Take care of yourself, your friends, and your family
    Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.
  • Take a break from the news
    Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body
    Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced mealsexercise regularlyget plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind
    Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others
    While we may not be able to have conversations face to face, we can still reach out and check on each other with the use of technology. Connect with others via phone or text. Use platforms like Facetime or Zoom for video chat or download apps like Marco Polo – a free face-to-face video messaging app – that helps people stay close.
  • Talk about your concerns with a Peer Support Specialist
    This is a person who uses their lived experience of recovery from mental illness and/or addiction, plus skills learned in formal training, to deliver services to promote mind-body recovery and resiliency.

This is a unique time that leaves many parents questioning what to say to their children and how to address the possible emotional fallout from this situation. Here are some suggestions on how to help children cope.

Remember, call the Clackamas County crisis and support line at 503-655-8585 or your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row. You are not alone in this. We are here to support you.

Excerpt(s):

Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline!

Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day.

No appointments needed! We are here for you!

Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer.

Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call! David Romprey Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392

Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.

Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has lead many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.


We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.


Any Oregonian needing support may call our David Romprey Oregon Warmline to speak to a trained peer. We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ any one to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this David Romprey Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care.

About PRPSN

The Friendship Line, now known as the Warm Line, received its first call in 1999. The purpose of the line was to share experiences, rather than deal with crises. It continues to operate 365 days a year and is staffed entirely by consumers who provide and listening ears to callers during the hours when the services they rely on for help are closed.

Hacienda of Hope opened its doors in 2014 as one the first Peer-Run Respite Care Homes in Los Angeles County. Funded by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, Hacienda of Hope serves guests eighteen years and older who are in psychiatric distress but not a danger to self or others. During their temporary stay guests receive support with activities of daily living, attend peer-run support groups, participate in extracurricular and recreational activities and are linked to outside services and natural community supports.

In 2015 PRPSN was recognized by Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health as its own legal entity and expanded its breadth and depth as a contract provider to include: step-down, Peer support/peer counseling/peer mentoring services, alternative crisis support, bridging and support services, workforce training and development, wellness centers/client run centers, and innovation services.

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.

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach OSPO: Older Adult Telephone Support – Daily @ Phone
Jan 26 all-day

 

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach

Older Adult Telephone Support

“No Need To Go It Alone”

Oregon Senior Peer Outreach offers friendly weekly calls to older adults who may be experiencing loneliness, isolation, sadness, grief or loss. This year has been exceptionally challenging for seniors, and our trained senior peers are ready to share their hope and connection!

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

or

make a referral online using our Senior Outreach Online Referral Form

Senior Outreach Online Referral Form (CLICK HERE!!!)

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Telephone Support with Pandemic Go Teams (mobile/clinical) @ Clackamas County – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Jan 26 all-day

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

Excerpt(s) from https://www.clackamas.us/coronavirus/mental-health:

Mental Health Connection

Call 503-655-8585. We’re here for you.

Hope and connection are important in these trying times. While the Clackamas County Mental Health Center is not open to walk-ins, the phone number is available 24/7. This number is not just a crisis line, the staff there can provide support for anyone who might be worried or anxious about what is going on.

  • Take care of yourself, your friends, and your family
    Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.
  • Take a break from the news
    Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body
    Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced mealsexercise regularlyget plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind
    Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others
    While we may not be able to have conversations face to face, we can still reach out and check on each other with the use of technology. Connect with others via phone or text. Use platforms like Facetime or Zoom for video chat or download apps like Marco Polo – a free face-to-face video messaging app – that helps people stay close.
  • Talk about your concerns with a Peer Support Specialist
    This is a person who uses their lived experience of recovery from mental illness and/or addiction, plus skills learned in formal training, to deliver services to promote mind-body recovery and resiliency.

This is a unique time that leaves many parents questioning what to say to their children and how to address the possible emotional fallout from this situation. Here are some suggestions on how to help children cope.

Remember, call the Clackamas County crisis and support line at 503-655-8585 or your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row. You are not alone in this. We are here to support you.

Excerpt(s):

Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline!

Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day.

No appointments needed! We are here for you!

Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer.

Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call! David Romprey Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392

Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.

Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has lead many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.


We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.


Any Oregonian needing support may call our David Romprey Oregon Warmline to speak to a trained peer. We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ any one to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this David Romprey Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care.

About PRPSN

The Friendship Line, now known as the Warm Line, received its first call in 1999. The purpose of the line was to share experiences, rather than deal with crises. It continues to operate 365 days a year and is staffed entirely by consumers who provide and listening ears to callers during the hours when the services they rely on for help are closed.

Hacienda of Hope opened its doors in 2014 as one the first Peer-Run Respite Care Homes in Los Angeles County. Funded by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, Hacienda of Hope serves guests eighteen years and older who are in psychiatric distress but not a danger to self or others. During their temporary stay guests receive support with activities of daily living, attend peer-run support groups, participate in extracurricular and recreational activities and are linked to outside services and natural community supports.

In 2015 PRPSN was recognized by Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health as its own legal entity and expanded its breadth and depth as a contract provider to include: step-down, Peer support/peer counseling/peer mentoring services, alternative crisis support, bridging and support services, workforce training and development, wellness centers/client run centers, and innovation services.

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.

In every county of the state, we are offering “Holiday Connection Calls!” Our friendly trained senior peer supporters will provide a reliable weekly call to listen, learn and share with you through the fall and winter holidays.

Please let us know you would like our service by calling 1-833-736-4676

If an older adult lives in an OSPO County (Washington, Clatsop, Columbia or Tillamook), we can offer long-term peer partnerships! These weekly calls have proven results of reducing loneliness.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation. A team of experienced Senior Peer Support staff place weekly calls to connect with isolated Seniors to reduce the health impacts of loneliness and social isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

Seniors who are 55+ and who:

  • Live in Oregon
  • who may feel isolated and lonely
  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Telephone Support with Pandemic Go Teams (mobile/clinical) @ Clackamas County – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Jan 27 all-day

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

Excerpt(s) from https://www.clackamas.us/coronavirus/mental-health:

Mental Health Connection

Call 503-655-8585. We’re here for you.

Hope and connection are important in these trying times. While the Clackamas County Mental Health Center is not open to walk-ins, the phone number is available 24/7. This number is not just a crisis line, the staff there can provide support for anyone who might be worried or anxious about what is going on.

  • Take care of yourself, your friends, and your family
    Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.
  • Take a break from the news
    Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body
    Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced mealsexercise regularlyget plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind
    Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others
    While we may not be able to have conversations face to face, we can still reach out and check on each other with the use of technology. Connect with others via phone or text. Use platforms like Facetime or Zoom for video chat or download apps like Marco Polo – a free face-to-face video messaging app – that helps people stay close.
  • Talk about your concerns with a Peer Support Specialist
    This is a person who uses their lived experience of recovery from mental illness and/or addiction, plus skills learned in formal training, to deliver services to promote mind-body recovery and resiliency.

This is a unique time that leaves many parents questioning what to say to their children and how to address the possible emotional fallout from this situation. Here are some suggestions on how to help children cope.

Remember, call the Clackamas County crisis and support line at 503-655-8585 or your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row. You are not alone in this. We are here to support you.

Excerpt(s):

Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline!

Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day.

No appointments needed! We are here for you!

Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer.

Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call! David Romprey Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392

Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.

Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has lead many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.


We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.


Any Oregonian needing support may call our David Romprey Oregon Warmline to speak to a trained peer. We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ any one to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this David Romprey Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care.

About PRPSN

The Friendship Line, now known as the Warm Line, received its first call in 1999. The purpose of the line was to share experiences, rather than deal with crises. It continues to operate 365 days a year and is staffed entirely by consumers who provide and listening ears to callers during the hours when the services they rely on for help are closed.

Hacienda of Hope opened its doors in 2014 as one the first Peer-Run Respite Care Homes in Los Angeles County. Funded by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, Hacienda of Hope serves guests eighteen years and older who are in psychiatric distress but not a danger to self or others. During their temporary stay guests receive support with activities of daily living, attend peer-run support groups, participate in extracurricular and recreational activities and are linked to outside services and natural community supports.

In 2015 PRPSN was recognized by Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health as its own legal entity and expanded its breadth and depth as a contract provider to include: step-down, Peer support/peer counseling/peer mentoring services, alternative crisis support, bridging and support services, workforce training and development, wellness centers/client run centers, and innovation services.

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.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Peers reach out to seniors that feel lonely.

The Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Telephone Service is now accepting referrals from ALL Oregon counties! This peer support program has been designed to increase the well-being of Oregon Seniors (55+) who live in the rural and frontier counties and has now expanded to serve all Oregon older adults who are suffering from COVID isolation.

Program leadership is provided by CCS Staff members:

  • Sharon Kuehn, Oregon Warmline/Senior Peer Outreach Program Manager
  • Todd Trautner, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor
  • Mark Fisher, Oregon Senior Peer Outreach Program Supervisor

Our team of experienced Senior Peer Supporters place weekly telephone calls to elders (55+) in Oregon who want a caring, compassionate friend to talk with. We understand some of the unique challenges of growing older and spending too much time alone. Let us provide a caring, personal connection!

Our goal is to connect with our participants, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences and to find and share hope. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. Our Senior Peer Supporters are people who have experienced life challenges – including big feelings, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. Now that we are moving into our golden years, we feel that there is no need to go it alone!

Referrals for persons who may benefit from the new service can be made by filling out the Referral Request form located below, or by calling us at:

1-833-736-4676 (1-833-SeniorOutreach)

  • and are interested in receiving weekly phone calls from another senior to build a mutually supportive relationship

Qualifying Seniors and/or persons with physical disabilities will be served. Once our service capacity is reached, a waiting list will be developed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Telephone Support with Pandemic Go Teams (mobile/clinical) @ Clackamas County – Weekdays and Weekends @ Phone
Jan 28 all-day

Clackamas County has initiated Go Teams to help community members struggling with stress and anxiety during this Coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic – available by phone 24/7 (24 hours per day, 7 days per week) at: 503-655-8585.

See article on KPTV at: https://www.kptv.com/news/go-teams-clackamas-co-launches-program-to-help-people-struggling-with-stress-anxiety-during-covid/article_d3383498-897f-11ea-9c43-9b4da6c01dc7.html

“Go Teams” wear protective gear and can go into the community and meet with the person who is struggling and listen to their story.  They are trained in psychological first aid which is described as “a provider going to connect with an individual by really listening and showing empathy,” but “[it] is not therapy or case management…[or] crisis mental health services.”

Excerpt(s) from https://www.clackamas.us/coronavirus/mental-health:

Mental Health Connection

Call 503-655-8585. We’re here for you.

Hope and connection are important in these trying times. While the Clackamas County Mental Health Center is not open to walk-ins, the phone number is available 24/7. This number is not just a crisis line, the staff there can provide support for anyone who might be worried or anxious about what is going on.

  • Take care of yourself, your friends, and your family
    Helping others cope with their stress can also make your community stronger.
  • Take a break from the news
    Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body
    Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced mealsexercise regularlyget plenty of sleep, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind
    Try to do some other activities you enjoy.
  • Connect with others
    While we may not be able to have conversations face to face, we can still reach out and check on each other with the use of technology. Connect with others via phone or text. Use platforms like Facetime or Zoom for video chat or download apps like Marco Polo – a free face-to-face video messaging app – that helps people stay close.
  • Talk about your concerns with a Peer Support Specialist
    This is a person who uses their lived experience of recovery from mental illness and/or addiction, plus skills learned in formal training, to deliver services to promote mind-body recovery and resiliency.

This is a unique time that leaves many parents questioning what to say to their children and how to address the possible emotional fallout from this situation. Here are some suggestions on how to help children cope.

Remember, call the Clackamas County crisis and support line at 503-655-8585 or your healthcare provider if stress gets in the way of your daily activities for several days in a row. You are not alone in this. We are here to support you.

Excerpt(s):

Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline!

Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day.

No appointments needed! We are here for you!

Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer.

Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call! David Romprey Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392

Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.

Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has lead many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.


We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.


Any Oregonian needing support may call our David Romprey Oregon Warmline to speak to a trained peer. We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ any one to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this David Romprey Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care.

About PRPSN

The Friendship Line, now known as the Warm Line, received its first call in 1999. The purpose of the line was to share experiences, rather than deal with crises. It continues to operate 365 days a year and is staffed entirely by consumers who provide and listening ears to callers during the hours when the services they rely on for help are closed.

Hacienda of Hope opened its doors in 2014 as one the first Peer-Run Respite Care Homes in Los Angeles County. Funded by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health, Hacienda of Hope serves guests eighteen years and older who are in psychiatric distress but not a danger to self or others. During their temporary stay guests receive support with activities of daily living, attend peer-run support groups, participate in extracurricular and recreational activities and are linked to outside services and natural community supports.

In 2015 PRPSN was recognized by Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health as its own legal entity and expanded its breadth and depth as a contract provider to include: step-down, Peer support/peer counseling/peer mentoring services, alternative crisis support, bridging and support services, workforce training and development, wellness centers/client run centers, and innovation services.

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.
