Our Monthly Newsletters
For the month of May, Rimrock Trails joins the national movement to raise awareness about mental health concerns. We help reduce stigma around seeking services, provide support, educate the public, and advocate for policies supporting people with mental illness and their families.
Rimrock Trail’s counseling clinics are thriving and that is in part thanks to the amazing and important work of Outpatient Counselor, Chelsi Howard!
Chelsi started her career with Rimrock Trails in the residential treatment program and eventually moved into the Bend counseling clinic. She holds her master’s in Clinical Counseling with a concentration in wilderness therapy from Naropa University in Boulder Colorado.
With funding from the Oregon Health Authority’s 2020 CORONAVIRUS RELIEF FUNDS FOR LICENSED RESIDENTIAL PROVIDERS, Rimrock Trails has partnered with Able Construction, LLC to start renovations which will increase the safety of our clients and staff in the adolescent residential treatment program due to the risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Rimrock Trails is proud to partner with Be Bottle to help make the Holidays Merry for everyone in our community!
Mental health is all about being brave, being true, and being you! For every Be Bottle sold, ALL PROFITS will benefit Rimrock Trail’s mental health counseling clinics and adolescent residential treatment program.
Why Be Bottle? It's the most advanced, innovative, and fashionably functional personal hydration product on the planet.

How are you holding up Central Oregon?
The stress of the COVID-19 crisis is exacerbating individuals’ anxiety, depression, grief, and a myriad of other concerns. Fear and anxiety about the disease, isolation, and job insecurity can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. May is nationally recognized as Mental Health Awareness Month and there is no better time to talk about mental health than right now.
We are thrilled to welcome Maggie Allen to the Rimrock Trails team. On the job for just two weeks, Maggie is fulfilling the required Bridging the Gap Behavioral Health Navigator position.
Prior to moving to Oregon three weeks ago, Maggie worked for seven years in mental health and two years in health care recruitment. In addition to work, Maggie is pursuing a degree in psychology and communications.
Due to an urgent need in the community for child and family counseling services, Rimrock Trails hired Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Jackie Taylor to offer specialized counseling services focused on children diagnosed with mental health disorders and their families. The clinic will continue to provide individual and group counseling services to persons of all ages and with Jackie's direction incorporate a specialized focus on children's mental health issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, and grief.
We are so proud to announce that our very own Community Relations Manager, Michelle Duff and her husband John, were presented with the Redmond Chamber of Commerce & CVB 2019 Citizens of the Year Award!
A huge shout out for another wonderful donation from our friends at The 1017 Cattle Project. In early January, this awesome group of volunteers donated a 1/2 beef to fill the freezer in our teen residential treatment program's kitchen. This is the third donation from this amazing organization. Their giving spirit is an inspiration!
We are thankful to our valued partners at Northwestern Home Loans for their generous gift of $1,500.00! This kind donation will allow our Rimrock Trails Team to purchase holiday gifts for the teen residents in our residential treatment program.
