The Center Collaborative

Creative Solutions in Behavioral Health and Criminal Justice

From the Oregon Center on Behavioral Health and Criminal Justice, this series shines a light on partnerships that are moving the dial, leading to better solutions and outcomes for people who may become involved with the justice system due to experiencing behavioral health, intellectual/developmental disabilities, or neurocognitive concerns.

We talk with guests representing prominent voices from government, the judicial system, public safety, healthcare, and the broader community throughout metropolitan and rural parts of Oregon.

Nov 3, 2021

The Oregon Center on Behavioral Health and Justice Integration (OCBHJI) launched our podcast in March of 2021 and after 18 fantastic episodes, we’ve reached the end of season 1. 

We’d like to thank our amazing guests for sharing their programs and insights with us, as well as our fantastic listeners for your support. 

After a brief holiday break, we will return for Season 2 in the new year with more nuanced and thoughtful conversations about what works. 

In the interim, please reach out to us if you have ideas for guests or topics you’d like featured on the program. You can reach us on OCBHJI’s Facebook page, or you can email us at

We’d also love to hear your thoughts about the podcast in general, please rate and review us on your favorite podcast app.

On a final note, as we enter a season of giving, the podcast team is asking you to please think about giving to charities that address the needs of traditionally underserved populations. 

For example, The Center is a specialized division of Greater Oregon Behavioral Health, Inc (GOBHI). If you are looking for a way to make a tax deductible charitable contribution, please consider GOBHI in your giving this year. 

GOBHI is a rural/frontier behavioral health and social services network, empowering individuals and communities to achieve better health. It is also a 501 (c3) nonprofit corporation. Your giving can make a difference in GOBHI’s charitable efforts this winter.

Stay tuned to for updates about how you can help, and just how much of a difference giving can make.

Again, thank you so much for your support of our podcast - we could not spread the word on what is working without our listeners or our guests. 

Have a happy and healthy holiday season! We look forward to releasing season 2 episodes in the New Year!
