Department Summary

The Ballmer Institute for Children's Behavioral Health, based in Portland, Oregon, will establish a new national model for behavioral health care by uniting UO's nationally recognized research programs in education, psychology, and prevention science, Oregon public schools and families, and community support groups in the creation and delivery of promotion, prevention, and intervention programs that can be part of the daily lives of children and adolescents. This groundbreaking initiative was announced on March 1, 2022, and made possible by the extraordinary gift of more than $425 million from Connie and Steve Ballmer, co-founders of Ballmer Group Philanthropy. The Institute will serve youth K-12, while prioritizing the needs of children, adolescents, and families who have been persistently and/or historically underserved.
