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.
Thank you to the very talented and skilled community of Our Savior's Stitchin Sisters, for gifting us 20 beautiful quilts. The quilts will be given as warm and comforting Christmas gifts to the teens who will be in our residential treatment program and away from home during the Holiday Season.
Thank you to Dan Mooney of Mooney Marketing and Josh Werner of Edward Jones Investments in Redmond, for allowing us to be the fortunate recipients of the "Mad Max" Car Raffle at the September Cascade Car Show.
