Mental Health Services at Lifeways are based on the latest advances and best practices in the art and science of psychiatry, psychology, and mental health. We encourage professional excellence by providing our staff with ongoing opportunities for training and study necessary to remain abreast of new developments and best practices. We maintain a rigorous quality assurance and quality improvement process to ensure that our clinical practice is appropriate, effective, and in line with accepted national standards and the state of the art.

Lifeways is committed to providing appointments and services in ways and times that are convenient for participants. Our goal is to respond to all new requests for services with appointments within two weeks of the initial request. Our walk-in clinic ensures immediate care for those experiencing acute distress. Crisis assessment and intervention services by qualified mental health professionals are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.

Lifeways is committed to ensuring that our services are affordable. Lifeways is the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) provider for Malheur County. Services covered under OHP are provided to enrollees without cost to the participant. Lifeways accepts most forms of insurance. We can help to determine whether or not someone’s insurance will cover part or all of the cost of services. For those with no insurance or with inadequate insurance coverage, we can provide discounted rates based on family income. We can help to arrange easy payment plans or work on a pro bono basis to ensure that no person is denied essential services.

Lifeways staff are expected to adhere to the highest standard of ethical and professional conduct. Our Code of Ethical Conduct is designed to protect clients from harm and to ensure that they receive the services they need in ways that respect their human dignity and individual rights.
