If you think someone is being hurt or is in danger, call 911.

Fear and anxiety about the COVID-19 outbreak can cause strong emotions in adults and children. It is essential to prepare and take care, not panic. Help is available through the resources below.

Washington County has a COVID-19 supportive counseling program. The COVID-19 Community Counseling Program (CCCP) is a partnership between Washington County, Lifeworks NW, Western Psychological, Asian Health, and Service Center, and Lutheran Community Services NW. CCCP provides support to Washington County community members who need help related to the pandemic. Core services include: 

  • Supportive counseling with an emphasis on developing coping skills and resilience.
  • Support in understanding personal reactions, planning action steps, and developing solutions to resolve losses and overcome difficulties.  
  • Referral and connection to longer-term behavioral health care if needed. 

Services are provided at no charge. Linguistically and culturally specific services are also available. 

How to get help:

To request an appointment, email or call Washington County Behavioral Health at 503-846-4528. 

This is not a crisis line, and you will not be able to speak with a counselor right away. It is also meant to be short-term assistance (a few sessions per individual). If you need immediate help, call the Washington County Crisis Line at 503-291-9111 (available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week). Call 9-1-1 for life threatening emergencies. More resources available here:
