American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Eugene, Oregon Chapter
CAHOOTS is an integral part of the behavioral health community in Eugene. They are able to offer evaluation and recommendations for those in crisis without involving law enforcement. White Bird clinic is one of the many organizations that participate in the Out of the Darkness walk. A huge thank you to the folks at White Bird and the CAHOOTS staff for their efforts to help people in crisis in the Eugene/Springfield area.
Chrysalis has been a positive part of my life for quite a while. I wouldn’t be who I am today without this place. I came 7 years ago to work on making some changes and have recently come back for a little preventative tune up and some emotional education... I couldn’t be happier with the services at Chrysalis, then and especially now! The councilors are top notch and the array of support here is unsurpassed. I’ve been to a few other outpatient treatment programs and this one surely sets itself aside! I just want to say thank you to the entire team of people that make it happen, the ones I know and especially the ones I don’t know or don’t get to see in action, You are all appreciated!!! Thanks for keeping it real, friends!

Concert Attendee at the Dead and Company show at Autzen Stadium, June 2018
Thank you for taking care of me last night. Heat exhaustion; political imbroglio, babies and families.... It all hit me at once. Being at a Dead concert - in your care - must have been the safest place I could be to fall to pieces. Thank you for holding your hands out to catch and comfort me. It was a spectacular show!
Jack TrippDirector / Eugene Mission
CAHOOTS is critical to the operations of the Eugene Mission…. We call on CAHOOTS several times daily to provide solutions to extremely complicated guest issues. They are top notched professionals in handling these urgent cases.
