Our History:
Lifeways began in 1964 as Malheur County Mental Health with 14 employees. Because we are rural (10,000 square miles, 32,000 people), prior to 1964 people had to seek services from a medical doctor, or travel to Portland, Oregon (400 miles), or Boise, Idaho (50 miles). In October of 1997 Malheur County Mental Health privatized and incorporated. It became Lifeways, Inc., moved to larger quarters and eventually began serving Umatilla County as well. Lifeways now employs more than 200 people in the two counties.

Lifeways offers a comprehensive array of behavioral health services. In Malheur County, services include help with issues related to mental and emotional health, developmental disabilities, substance use and problem gambling. In Umatilla County, services are limited to help with mental and emotional problems.
