Trillium Family Services: Parry Center for Children


logoTrillium Family Services is Oregon’s largest provider of children’s mental and behavioral healthcare. It is rooted in the simple, yet crucial truth that mental health is an integral part of overall health and well-being. Trillium’s vision is to help children and their families learn the skills necessary to manage their mental health needs and become thriving members of society.

Nestled within the Portland Metro area, Trillium’s Parry Center 9-acre campus provides residential and intensive community-based mental health services to youth in crises, and employs a myriad of clinicians and staff who are innovative and compassionate about the community.
