Health and Human Services Records
Series documents the activities of the county health and human services programs operated by the county. Series includes narrative or statistical monthly, quarterly, and annual reports or minutes discussing program goals, objectives, and accomplishments. Program areas include public and mental health; juvenile services; adult and family services; women, infant, and child (WIC) services; alcohol and drug abuse; and developmental disabilities. In 1994 the name of the Children and Youth Services Commission was changed to the Commission on Children and Families.
The board of county commissioners acts as the board of health for Malheur County. Mental health services were provided by the county until 1997 when Lifeways Behavioral Health Inc. took over by contract. Lifeways also provides services related to developmental disabilities and alcohol and drug treatment.
