We offer individual and group therapy as well as psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and case management in collaboration with primary care providers, and various community services. Many of our staff are immigrants or former refugees themselves so they have a profound understanding of the struggles that this community faces. Our team of counselors who speak many different languages work alongside psychiatrists to provide interpretation, cultural insight, and basic skills training. The Torture Treatment Center of Oregon (TTCO) is a program within IPP that meets the unique needs of survivors of torture.

Also works with an administrative team consisting of a faculty practice manager, a clinical supervisor and a Director of Clinical Operations for the Department of Psychiatry, as well as the larger Department administrative services.
