What We Do

We treat cognitive, emotional and behavioral problems.  Our goal is to provide courteous and professional treatment with a minimum of additional emotional discomfort.  We offer a wide range of services to children, teens and adults including group, individual, marital and family counseling, medication, play therapy, and psychological testing.

 

History

Valley Mental Health was started in 1994 with six staff and has gradually grown in size and the scope of services offered. We have grown to over twenty-five clinicians. Most of us have been working together for years, cooperating to provide our patients and clients with treatment suited to their specific personal needs.

Business Hours

Most of the clinicians in VMH keep their own schedules, offering a range of hours including evenings and Saturdays. After hours, a qualified professional is always on call to handle emergencies.

New Clients

All request for services come to the main office at 503-589-4046 and we will match you with the clinician that meet your needs.

Prescription Refills

Be sure to call your pharmacy at least four days before you need the refill. Even if you have no refills remaining, it is almost always best to call your pharmacy. If a prescriber’s approval is needed for your prescription to be refilled, your pharmacist will call or fax us.

Schedule II Medications

Federal law requires that certain medications need a new, original prescription written by your prescriber each time the medication is dispensed. It is not possible to have a prescription with refills. If you are requesting refill of a prescription for a schedule II medication, the best procedure is to leave your prescriber a voice mail including your name, the name of the medication, whether it is immediate release or timed release, the strength of the tablets or capsules and how many you take per day. Unless you need to come in for an evaluation, you can expect a call back within a day or two telling you your prescription is ready to pick up.
