The American Mental Health Alliance-Oregon is established to promote these values:
The American Mental Health Alliance - USA (AMHA-USA)
AMHA-USA is a growing national alliance of mental health professionals who are actively involved in supporting consumer rights and are committed to providing competent, confidential and accountable mental health care and services. AMHA-USA is very concerned about a growing practice of businesses that are downsizing mental health services, eliminating competition and corrupting the practice of counseling, psychotherapy and evaluation. At the heart of these concerns is the growing intrusion of managed health care into the confidential relationship between you and your health care professional. AMHA-USA consists of a growing number of non-profit state chapter organizations. Each Chapter consists of licensed mental health professionals who are accountable to the public and laws within their State.
For more information on the national organization go to the American Mental Health Alliance -USA home page.
