Community Services
Behavioral Health Services

Behavioral health is an encompassing term that describes the connection between behavior and the well-being of an individual’s body, mind and spirit. Given the tools to change behavior, thinking patterns and coping mechanisms, people can work toward improving their physical and mental health.

Coquille Indian Tribal members can access behavioral health appointments through Community Services by calling Kim Codding at 541-888-9494, ext. 2282.
