Gilliam County Records Inventory

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.

Gilliam County shared mental health, developmental disabilities, and alcohol and drug abuse programs with Wasco, Sherman, and Hood River Counties until July 2008. Community Counseling Solutions (formerly Behavioral Health Services) now provides mental health services. The Gilliam County Court considers public health related issues as needed. The county has no separate public health advisory board.
