Housed in a renovated historic landmark building in Grants Pass, Oregon, Options for Southern Oregon is the result of a grassroots, community-driven movement that sought to provide alternatives in the care of chronically mentally ill adults. The governing policies of Options are grounded in a philosophy of individual empowerment, hope and recovery where people with mental illness are seen as citizens who can and do participate as vital members in the life of the community.



Our strong commitment to identify and promote clients' strengths and assets has lead the agency to be creative and resourceful in initiation of programs that depart from the traditional model. Options' programs have been cited by national publications including Getting Better and The Care of the Seriously Mentally Ill, a joint publication of the Public Citizen Health Research Group and the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill. Options was selected by the President's Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities as one of 24 programs throughout the nation that exemplify best practices in supported employment. Options has developed a national reputation for quality training and innovative treatment approaches. (L to R) Cheryl Luke and Charlotte Thompson
