Whoever you are and whatever you may be going through, you are welcome on the Warmline! Our caring team of trained peers offers nonjudgmental and confidential peer support every day. No appointments needed! We are here for you! Our goal is to connect with you, to listen, and to discover together how we can make sense of our experiences. We understand that everyone has a unique worldview. People can see more possibilities for ourselves when we connect with a compassionate peer. Our Warmline Team members are people who have experienced life challenges – including moods, voices, visions, trauma, and addictions. We know what it is like to feel big feelings or to find ourselves in moments when there seems to be little to hope for. No need to go through this alone… Give us a call! David Romprey Oregon Warmline 1-800-698-2392 Intentional Peer Support (IPS) provides a powerful framework for creating relationships where both people learn and grow together. IPS is used across the world in community, peer support, and human services settings, and is a tool for community development that honors each person’s strengths and innate value. Why IPS? Peers come together around shared experiences and often a desire to change lives. But without a new framework to build upon, people frequently re-enact “help” based on what was done to them. IPS offers a foundation for doing something different. We focus on building relationships that are mutual, explorative, and conscious of power. We won’t try to “fix” you, but we would love to connect with you to listen, share, and learn with you as we both move forward in our life journeys.

Our confidential and non-judgmental peer support starts with the premise that people have learned to make meaning of their experiences and relationships out of everything they have learned in their lives. We know that this has lead many people to feel undeserving, distrusting, and inherently flawed. Without understanding how we, as individuals, have come to know what we know about being in relationship and the world around us, we are likely to have trouble, not only with emotional distress, but also with a continuous struggle when there is tension in relationship or in one’s community.

We believe that crisis is an opportunity to learn. In a mutual and respectful conversation, peers discover together how they have developed their beliefs about themselves and the world in which they live. Together, help and crisis are redefined and have new meaning. Each person has the opportunity to challenge themselves to learn how they might change their trauma story of victimhood and crisis to one of mental wellness.

Any Oregonian needing support may call our David Romprey Oregon Warmline to speak to a trained peer. We do not give advice or attempt to ‘get’ any one to do anything. We are there to listen and validated the caller’s feelings and experiences. Together we have a conversation in which we both become more self aware while learning and growing together. We share experience and knowledge in order to discover ways in which we both learn new ways of managing our feelings and discover healthier ways of being in relationship with others. Once where an individual had to “cope” with an issue, they may learn to challenge their beliefs regarding that issue, have a different experience of the situation and no longer have to “cope” because the issue no longer exists. The use of this David Romprey Oregon Warmline may help people decrease the need for frequent doctor’s visits, emergency room treatment, involvement with law enforcement, and the need for more intensive care such a psychiatric hospitalizations.

Always available and only a phone call away!

No registration or assessment required. Just give us a call!

I love Yoga, nature, the ocean, the silent strength of rowing crew, volunteering with Shut It Down and 350 PDX to sustain human life on our beautiful planet, gardening, watching my gorgeous granddaughter Caroline Grace as she grows, and cooking vegetarian delights.

What I love most about this job is the smile you can bring to someone’s face. Seeing people happy is all I could ever want in a job. The biggest accomplishment of my life would have to be when I joined the Navy. Just being a part of something bigger than you is one of the best feelings I have felt. In my off time, you can find me at the gym or be spending time with my family & friends. The gym to me is more than a hobby though, it’s my therapy.

I love that the Oregon Warmline is accessible to anyone who can communicate through the phone, regardless of their human condition, financial situation, or belief system. We strive to provide an accepting and safe space for each caller to self-direct their lives, express their feelings and learn how to grow new/healthy relationships (with themselves and with others). I am passionate about the work we do and the mission we uphold: To provide Free Accessible Quality Peer Support to All Oregonians (and more).

As a survivor who continues to recover from years of C-PTSD and Food Addiction, with first-hand experience in what is like to be houseless, pushed through systems, left completely alone in the world; I understand and deeply value the need for Warmlines. Nowadays, I’m feeling more capable & whole than ever before. In the last 10 years of my recovery journey, I have continued to seek out healthy modalities which have been a big part of healing and move towards supporting others along their recovery journey.
I know I needed this resource at a time when it was not accessible to me for various reasons, but today it’s fully accessible on a state and national level to anyone who should reach towards it. This is an integral social safety net & I want to be part of supporting its continued success! Go Team Warmline!

Working on the Oregon Warmline is one of the best jobs I have experienced. Everyday has challenges and opportunities for growth and connection. What do I love most about working on the Warmline? The people! The people who work on the Warmline, the community partners we work with, and most especially our callers. We may be located across the State of Oregon, yet we are making real and meaningful connections round the clock. I love that we are low barrier and no cost to the folks who call into the Warmline looking for that connection.
I live out on the beautiful Oregon Coast and enjoy going to the beach and exploring the mountain trails via 4×4 when the conditions permit. Living here is exciting as there are always places to explore. When the weather is not agreeable to outdoor exploration, I like to create a multitude of arts and crafts across my ever-expanding areas of interest.

What I love the most about peer support is that it empowers a person to make the best decisions for them and to strive towards their goals in their communities. Being a single mother and overcoming homelessness all while getting a college degree is my biggest accomplishment. I am grateful for the warmline and would not want to be anywhere else.
