Traditional Health Workers

Jackson Care Connect members can access licensed traditional health workers (THWs) at no cost. THWs are public health professionals who work in a community or clinic under a health provider. THWs have personal experience and training in their fields of expertise. There are five types of THWs licensed in Oregon:

  • Doulas are birth companions who provide personal, nonmedical support to families. Doulas help through pregnancy, childbirth and beyond.
  • Peer support specialists give support services to people who are or have been in mental health or substance use treatment.
  • Peer wellness specialists have personal experience with psychiatric conditions and intensive training. The specialist is part of a home health team that integrates mental health and primary care.
  • Personal health navigators provide tools to help patients make the best health care choices.
  • Community health workers are public health workers who are trusted members of a community and have a close understanding of it.

THWs are a free benefit to you. To get connected with one, call Customer Service.
