Behavioral Health Program

About AHSC’s Behavioral Health Program

AHSC provides state-certified outpatient mental health services for individuals insured by the Oregon Health Plan (CareOregon). Our clinicians are especially aware of the challenges Asian communities face when accessing mental health services, from language barriers to cultural misconceptions about mental health. AHSC’s mental health team engages individuals in a culturally sensitive and language specific way to provide therapeutic services in Cantonese-Chinese, Mandarin-Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and English. 

At our Portland and Beaverton locations, we offer:

  • Comprehensive assessments performed by Master level clinicians, and psychiatric assessments conducted by licensed Psychiatrists and a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
  • Bilingual and bicultural individual therapy for anyone 16 years old or older
  • Family therapy and couple’s therapy
