Several new mental health facilities are being developed in Eastern Oregon.
That’s good news for mental health advocates, as it comes just as the state of Oregon is preparing to close the 60-bed Blue Mountain Recovery Center in Pendleton. The facility is expected to close in March.
The Eastern Oregon Training Center is being renovated to house three new mental health facilities. One facility will serve as a crisis center and the other two will be residential treatment homes. The facilities will be run by private companies
