Multnomah County has made a huge effort to provide good crisis services via the county crisis line.  It is more than just a suicide hotline, functioning more like an urgent care and emergency room, staffed by individuals who have access to all the local community resources for mental health.  They can access state insurance information, connect you with rapid scheduling with community mental health providers, and facilitate moving into state-funded services in an expedited fashion.  503-988-4888

Unity Behavioral Health is the new center for crisis stabilization and treatment in the greater Portland area.  Their website is here: https://unityhealthcenter.org/ 

Call to Safety (Formerly the Women's Crisis Line): 888-235-5333

If you are having difficulty finding mental health support, your insurance company can often provide a list of covered clinicians.

The Psychology Today website has a good list of providers, with user-friendly search features: https://therapists.psychologytoday.com/

The Columbia River Eating Disorders Network (CREDN) has a website with lists of local therapists, dieticians, treatment progams, and physicians with specialty in eating disorders: www.credn.org
