Oregon Workforce and Economic Information: The Mental Health Industry

In recent years, society has been learning that mental health can be just as important as physical health. Oregon has joined in this trend, evidenced by the strong growth in mental health care workers around the state. Hospitals, clinics, and residential facilities employ thousands of trained mental health workers to help people get better. These jobs often pay better than average wages, but they come with larger than average challenges along with the potential to make a positive difference in the lives of people in the community.
