Gresham, Oregon Mental Health Treatment Facilities

Gresham is the fourth-largest city in Oregon, and is located just east of Portland. It was named for the American Civil War general, and Postmaster General Walter Quinton Gresham. The city was known for a long time as the “Campground” because pioneers used to commonly spend the night in the forested area. It wasn’t until a local storeowner offered to use his store as a post office and offered to name the city after Gresham that a post office and postal code were granted and Gresham could become a city.

Types of Mental Health Issues

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) generally affects adults. It is a diagnosis that describes a category of mood disorders with the presence of one or more episodes of abnormally high energy levels or mood and one or more depressive episodes. BPD sufferers often switch between idealizing and demonizing others. This, combined with mood disturbances, can undermine relationships with others. Often medication, as well as psychotherapy, can be used to treat borderline personality disorder. It may be necessary to consider hospitalization for the safety of the patient or others.

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event resulting in psychological trauma. This event may involve the threat to one’s own or someone else’s life or physical or sexual safety, overwhelming the individual’s ability to cope. PTSD symptoms can include re-experiencing the original trauma(s) through flashbacks or nightmares. It can be a long-lasting condition, and can cause significant impairment of many daily functions.
