National Alliance on Mental Illness of Clackamas County (NAMI Clackamas) is a grassroots organization by and for people impacted by mental illness, whether in themselves or a family member. Most of our services are provided by peers...that is, people who have "been there" and "done that". Everything we offer is available at no cost to the individual. (Located in Milwaukie.)
Basic Rights Oregon will ensure that all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer Oregonians experience equality by building a broad and inclusive politically powerful movement, shifting public opinion, and achieving policy victories. (Located in Portland.)
GLAPN "collects, preserves, documents, and shares as much as we are able. We help individuals and groups preserve their own historical data. We try to find a home for historically significant materials when they become available. We also gladly partner with organizations in the community to publicize and celebrate the history of all LGBTQ-identified minorities in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest."
Community support resources curated by NAMI Oregon, a chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. NAMI Oregon has "put together a list of resources covering a large range of topics, including housing, counseling/outpatient services, children and family services, culturally competent services, and more.

We acknowledge that the Clackamas Community College campuses reside on the traditional homelands of the Clackamas, Cascades, and Tumwater bands of Chinooks, as well as the Tualatin and Pudding River bands of Kalapuya and the Northern Molalla people. It is important that we acknowledge the ancestors of this place and to recognize that we are here because of the sacrifices they endure. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering and to this dialogue. Please join us in taking this opportunity to thank and honor the original caretakers of this land, their lives, and their descendants still caring for the land today.
We also acknowledge that our nation has benefited and profited from the free enslaved labor of Black people. We honor the legacy of the African diaspora and Black life, and the knowledge, skills, and human spirit that persevere in spite of violence and White supremacy.
