Calendar Event Sorting

At the top, the 24/7/365 SAMHSA Disaster Helpline and similar links.

Next, Bundled “All Day” Events

Some organizations (like 12 step recovery programs, AA, NA, AlAnon, etc.) have so many events happening throughout the day that they need to be in a bundled listing to spare endless scrolling.  Often there is a link to look up events by zip code and other criteria.

Lastly, Time-Specific Events

So you can see what’s happening in the next hours, time specific events are tagged and listed by start time from 12:01am early morning to 11:59pm late night.  There can be events and warmlines operating in different time zones, though we try to list all in Oregon’s Pacific Time Zone.

Deschutes County wildfire grows, creating health risks

Strong winds have fueled the “Darlene 3” wildfire, which started Tuesday, across nearly 4,000 acres in Deschutes County outside of La Pine, just south of Bend. Authorities have issued a Level 3 evacuation order for much of the area, meaning “go now,” and smaller areas are under Level 1 (“be ready”) and Level 2 (“be set”) evacuation orders. Learn more about evacuations, including what to take with you if you have medical needs, and shelter locations for people and animals in Deschutes County here.

Get the latest information on the Darlene 3 wildfire here.

Wildfire smoke is extra harmful for children, pregnant people, and those with chronic medical conditions. People at risk for severe smoke effects should try to stay indoors when the air quality reaches “unhealthy for sensitive groups,” and others when outdoor air quality reaches “unhealthy.”  Keep your indoor air quality clean by shutting windows and, if possible, using a home air filter. If you do not have access to a commercial air filtration device, you can make your own. Use an air conditioner or visit a local cooling center if it gets too hot.

While smoke conditions are improving in the Bend area today, localized smoke is expected close to the fire. Stay up to date on air quality in your area here, on current fires in Central Oregon here, and throughout the state here.

To plan ahead, people enrolled only in Oregon Health Plan (OHP/Medicaid) may be eligible to receive free air conditioners and/or air filtration devices in one of two ways:

OHP members enrolled in a coordinated care organization (CCO) can contact their CCO and ask if they offer “flexible services.” Native American OHP members without a CCO can request flexible services via CareOregon by calling 503-416-4100.

OHP members can also contact their CCO and ask about Health-Related Social Needs (HRSN) benefits. HRSNs help people during times of greater need such as being released from incarceration, being homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless, transitioning from Medicaid-only to “dual eligibility” (Medicaid and Medicare), etc. OHP members not enrolled in a CCO, also known as “Open Card” or “fee-for-service,” can call 888-834-4304 or email ORHRSN@kepro.com.

NATIONAL EATING DISORDERS ASSOCIATION

The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders.

In the United States, 28.8 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their lives. Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental and physical illnesses that can affect people of all genders, ages, races, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, body shapes, and weights. In fact, eating disorders have the second highest mortality rate of all mental health disorders, surpassed only by opioid use disorder.

Eating disorders are widely misunderstood illnesses and support options are often inaccessible. As a result, too many people are left feeling helpless, hopeless, and frightened. Through our programs and services, NEDA raises awareness, builds communities of support and recovery, funds research, and puts vital resources into the hands of those in need.

Our Mission

NEDA supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders, and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care.

Our Vision

NEDA envisions a world without eating disorders.

Programs and Services

Whether you have been personally affected by an eating disorder or care about someone who has, NEDA’s programs and services are designed to help you find the help and support you need. Recovery is possible and we’re here to support you!

Screening Tool

This short eating disorders screening — appropriate for ages 13 and up — can help determine if it’s time to seek professional help.

Find Treatment

NEDA has a database of treatment providers across the country. Use our finder tool to locate options near you.

Where Do I Start?

You’ve decided it’s time to seek help and we’re so glad you did. NEDA is here to support you on your journey. These resources can help you take the first step to getting the help you deserve.

How Do I Help?

Having a strong support network is important to recovery. Whether you’re a loved one or a professional, there are steps you can take to offer support.

Free & Low Cost Support

Everyone deserves support for their eating concerns, and NEDA wants to connect you with resources that can help in addition to professional help. These free and low cost support options offer ways to connect with others and provide tools to promote recovery. Please note that these options do not replace professional treatment. We are listing them as additional support options to supplement recovery or maintenance.

Recovery & Relapse

Recovery from an eating disorder can take months, even years. Slips, backslides, and relapse tend to be the rule, rather than the exception. Re-learning normal eating habits and coping skills can take a long period of time and often requires lots of support from professionals, friends, and family. Moving forward is key, however slow it might be.

COVID-19 Resources

Everyone deserves support for their eating concerns, and NEDA wants to connect you with resources that can help in addition to professional help. In this time of great uncertainty and disturbance we face the added danger that isolation brings to those among us who are struggling with an eating disorder. Please refer to this list to explore recovery pathways with virtual support.

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Open Monday – Friday 10AM – 6PM PT

Toll-Free USA: 877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada: 877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just require someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.


Trans Lifeline is training Spanish-speaking volunteers who identify as transgender and want to support the Translatinx community by being a volunteer operator for our dedicated Spanish hotline. This line will launch this summer.

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Open Monday – Friday 10AM – 6PM PT

Toll-Free USA: 877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada: 877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just require someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.


Trans Lifeline is training Spanish-speaking volunteers who identify as transgender and want to support the Translatinx community by being a volunteer operator for our dedicated Spanish hotline. This line will launch this summer.

Deschutes County wildfire grows, creating health risks

Strong winds have fueled the “Darlene 3” wildfire, which started Tuesday, across nearly 4,000 acres in Deschutes County outside of La Pine, just south of Bend. Authorities have issued a Level 3 evacuation order for much of the area, meaning “go now,” and smaller areas are under Level 1 (“be ready”) and Level 2 (“be set”) evacuation orders. Learn more about evacuations, including what to take with you if you have medical needs, and shelter locations for people and animals in Deschutes County here.

Get the latest information on the Darlene 3 wildfire here.

Wildfire smoke is extra harmful for children, pregnant people, and those with chronic medical conditions. People at risk for severe smoke effects should try to stay indoors when the air quality reaches “unhealthy for sensitive groups,” and others when outdoor air quality reaches “unhealthy.”  Keep your indoor air quality clean by shutting windows and, if possible, using a home air filter. If you do not have access to a commercial air filtration device, you can make your own. Use an air conditioner or visit a local cooling center if it gets too hot.

While smoke conditions are improving in the Bend area today, localized smoke is expected close to the fire. Stay up to date on air quality in your area here, on current fires in Central Oregon here, and throughout the state here.

To plan ahead, people enrolled only in Oregon Health Plan (OHP/Medicaid) may be eligible to receive free air conditioners and/or air filtration devices in one of two ways:

OHP members enrolled in a coordinated care organization (CCO) can contact their CCO and ask if they offer “flexible services.” Native American OHP members without a CCO can request flexible services via CareOregon by calling 503-416-4100.

OHP members can also contact their CCO and ask about Health-Related Social Needs (HRSN) benefits. HRSNs help people during times of greater need such as being released from incarceration, being homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless, transitioning from Medicaid-only to “dual eligibility” (Medicaid and Medicare), etc. OHP members not enrolled in a CCO, also known as “Open Card” or “fee-for-service,” can call 888-834-4304 or email ORHRSN@kepro.com.

NATIONAL EATING DISORDERS ASSOCIATION

The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders.

In the United States, 28.8 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their lives. Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental and physical illnesses that can affect people of all genders, ages, races, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, body shapes, and weights. In fact, eating disorders have the second highest mortality rate of all mental health disorders, surpassed only by opioid use disorder.

Eating disorders are widely misunderstood illnesses and support options are often inaccessible. As a result, too many people are left feeling helpless, hopeless, and frightened. Through our programs and services, NEDA raises awareness, builds communities of support and recovery, funds research, and puts vital resources into the hands of those in need.

Our Mission

NEDA supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders, and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care.

Our Vision

NEDA envisions a world without eating disorders.

Programs and Services

Whether you have been personally affected by an eating disorder or care about someone who has, NEDA’s programs and services are designed to help you find the help and support you need. Recovery is possible and we’re here to support you!

Screening Tool

This short eating disorders screening — appropriate for ages 13 and up — can help determine if it’s time to seek professional help.

Find Treatment

NEDA has a database of treatment providers across the country. Use our finder tool to locate options near you.

Where Do I Start?

You’ve decided it’s time to seek help and we’re so glad you did. NEDA is here to support you on your journey. These resources can help you take the first step to getting the help you deserve.

How Do I Help?

Having a strong support network is important to recovery. Whether you’re a loved one or a professional, there are steps you can take to offer support.

Free & Low Cost Support

Everyone deserves support for their eating concerns, and NEDA wants to connect you with resources that can help in addition to professional help. These free and low cost support options offer ways to connect with others and provide tools to promote recovery. Please note that these options do not replace professional treatment. We are listing them as additional support options to supplement recovery or maintenance.

Recovery & Relapse

Recovery from an eating disorder can take months, even years. Slips, backslides, and relapse tend to be the rule, rather than the exception. Re-learning normal eating habits and coping skills can take a long period of time and often requires lots of support from professionals, friends, and family. Moving forward is key, however slow it might be.

COVID-19 Resources

Everyone deserves support for their eating concerns, and NEDA wants to connect you with resources that can help in addition to professional help. In this time of great uncertainty and disturbance we face the added danger that isolation brings to those among us who are struggling with an eating disorder. Please refer to this list to explore recovery pathways with virtual support.

Trans Lifeline

Peer Support and Crisis Hotline by and for Trans & Questioning

Open Monday – Friday 10AM – 6PM PT

Toll-Free USA: 877-565-8860

Toll-Free Canada: 877-330-6366

Trans Lifeline is a peer support service run by trans people, for trans and questioning callers. Our operators are located all over the U.S. and Canada and are all trans-identified. If you are in crisis or just need someone to talk to, even if it’s just about whether you’re trans, please call us. We will do our best to support you and provide you resources.

Our Hotline launched shortly after Trans Day of Remembrance of 2014 in response to the epidemic of suicide in our community. We believe that some of the best support that a trans person in a crisis can have is a fellow member of our community with shared lived experience.

While it started as a service for people in crisis, that is no longer the case. Trans Lifeline still functions as a crisis and suicide prevention hotline. However, it also serves as a space for trans people who just require someone to talk to.

Trans Lifeline provides live, one-on-one phone support, as well as large numbers of online resources for transgender and gender-questioning individuals. The hotline is open 24 hours a day. It is only guaranteed to be staffed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST, but operators are often also available at other times.

In addition to information resources, Trans Lifeline offers microgrants to individuals who need financial support when updating their name and gender on their legal documents. They accept a limited number of applications each month. However, they will pay the entire fee for most document changes other than birth certificates.


La línea directa de Trans Lifeline es un servicio de apoyo entre compañeros dirigido por personas trans, para personas trans. Nuestros operadores están ubicados en todo EE. UU. Y Canadá, y todos son trans identificados. Si está en crisis o simplemente necesita alguien con quien hablar, incluso si se trata solo de si es o no es trans, llámenos. Haremos todo lo posible para apoyarlo y brindarle recursos.

Nuestra línea directa se lanzó poco después del Día de la Remembranza Trans en 2014 en respuesta a la epidemia de suicidio en nuestra comunidad. Creemos que algunos de los mejores apoyos que una persona trans en crisis puede tener es la oportunidad de hablar con un miembro de nuestra comunidad con experiencia de vida compartida.


Trans Lifeline is training Spanish-speaking volunteers who identify as transgender and want to support the Translatinx community by being a volunteer operator for our dedicated Spanish hotline. This line will launch this summer.

Deschutes County wildfire grows, creating health risks

Strong winds have fueled the “Darlene 3” wildfire, which started Tuesday, across nearly 4,000 acres in Deschutes County outside of La Pine, just south of Bend. Authorities have issued a Level 3 evacuation order for much of the area, meaning “go now,” and smaller areas are under Level 1 (“be ready”) and Level 2 (“be set”) evacuation orders. Learn more about evacuations, including what to take with you if you have medical needs, and shelter locations for people and animals in Deschutes County here.

Get the latest information on the Darlene 3 wildfire here.

Wildfire smoke is extra harmful for children, pregnant people, and those with chronic medical conditions. People at risk for severe smoke effects should try to stay indoors when the air quality reaches “unhealthy for sensitive groups,” and others when outdoor air quality reaches “unhealthy.”  Keep your indoor air quality clean by shutting windows and, if possible, using a home air filter. If you do not have access to a commercial air filtration device, you can make your own. Use an air conditioner or visit a local cooling center if it gets too hot.

While smoke conditions are improving in the Bend area today, localized smoke is expected close to the fire. Stay up to date on air quality in your area here, on current fires in Central Oregon here, and throughout the state here.

To plan ahead, people enrolled only in Oregon Health Plan (OHP/Medicaid) may be eligible to receive free air conditioners and/or air filtration devices in one of two ways:

OHP members enrolled in a coordinated care organization (CCO) can contact their CCO and ask if they offer “flexible services.” Native American OHP members without a CCO can request flexible services via CareOregon by calling 503-416-4100.

OHP members can also contact their CCO and ask about Health-Related Social Needs (HRSN) benefits. HRSNs help people during times of greater need such as being released from incarceration, being homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless, transitioning from Medicaid-only to “dual eligibility” (Medicaid and Medicare), etc. OHP members not enrolled in a CCO, also known as “Open Card” or “fee-for-service,” can call 888-834-4304 or email ORHRSN@kepro.com.

NATIONAL EATING DISORDERS ASSOCIATION

The National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA) is the largest nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders.

In the United States, 28.8 million Americans will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their lives. Eating disorders are serious but treatable mental and physical illnesses that can affect people of all genders, ages, races, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, body shapes, and weights. In fact, eating disorders have the second highest mortality rate of all mental health disorders, surpassed only by opioid use disorder.

Eating disorders are widely misunderstood illnesses and support options are often inaccessible. As a result, too many people are left feeling helpless, hopeless, and frightened. Through our programs and services, NEDA raises awareness, builds communities of support and recovery, funds research, and puts vital resources into the hands of those in need.

Our Mission

NEDA supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders, and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care.

Our Vision

NEDA envisions a world without eating disorders.

Programs and Services

Whether you have been personally affected by an eating disorder or care about someone who has, NEDA’s programs and services are designed to help you find the help and support you need. Recovery is possible and we’re here to support you!

Screening Tool

This short eating disorders screening — appropriate for ages 13 and up — can help determine if it’s time to seek professional help.

Find Treatment

NEDA has a database of treatment providers across the country. Use our finder tool to locate options near you.

Where Do I Start?

You’ve decided it’s time to seek help and we’re so glad you did. NEDA is here to support you on your journey. These resources can help you take the first step to getting the help you deserve.

How Do I Help?

Having a strong support network is important to recovery. Whether you’re a loved one or a professional, there are steps you can take to offer support.

Free & Low Cost Support

Everyone deserves support for their eating concerns, and NEDA wants to connect you with resources that can help in addition to professional help. These free and low cost support options offer ways to connect with others and provide tools to promote recovery. Please note that these options do not replace professional treatment. We are listing them as additional support options to supplement recovery or maintenance.

Recovery & Relapse

Recovery from an eating disorder can take months, even years. Slips, backslides, and relapse tend to be the rule, rather than the exception. Re-learning normal eating habits and coping skills can take a long period of time and often requires lots of support from professionals, friends, and family. Moving forward is key, however slow it might be.

COVID-19 Resources

Everyone deserves support for their eating concerns, and NEDA wants to connect you with resources that can help in addition to professional help. In this time of great uncertainty and disturbance we face the added danger that isolation brings to those among us who are struggling with an eating disorder. Please refer to this list to explore recovery pathways with virtual support.
