The Mental Health Network is a standing body of the NASW Oregon Chapter. As such, it is accountable to the board of directors.
Network Charge: The Mental Health Network is committed to furthering
issues of diversity, inclusion, social justice, and competency in the
mental health and addiction treatment service systems. The network
provides a forum for support of social workers and allies working or
volunteering in the field. The network is invested in coalition
building, system reform, and strengthening the voices of the service
providers and recipients in the larger community.
Membership: Network members must be NASW members in good standing
with experience or interest in the mental health and/or addiction
treatment systems. Members should be prepared to serve for a minimum of
one year. Advisors to the network need not be NASW members but must

network will conduct business on an ongoing basis by email and will meet
in person at least twice a year.
