Consumer Care Partnerships
Consumer Care Partnerships (CCP) is a nationally recognized Marion County peer support program designed to provide peer-based outreach and support for people struggling with mainstream treatment modalities, recurrent crises and social isolation. The CCP program was designed to help consumers surmount barriers to hope and recovery and build meaningful connections to their communities by assisting them with creating community based support teams.
The goal of each team is to focus on the strengths of the individual and strive to nurture them through personal support, decreased isolation, increased involvement in desired activities, mentoring and just plain fun.
All Oregon Health Plan (OHP) Members are eligible to request CCP services. Each Individual requesting support will be match with trained facilitators who will work with them for up to a year. CCP Facilitators assist Members with:
- Creating his/her own unique support team.
- Organizing and facilitating team meetings.
- Identifying strengths, needs and goals.
- Facilitate the team in development and implementation of an action plan to reach identified needs and goals.
