May is Mental Health Awareness Month
Welcome to the 72nd Mental Health Awareness Month!
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.

Vital to Mental Health Awareness Month, is increasing access to services. Wait times for treatment remain one of the most substantial barriers to individuals receiving care. As such, in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we would like to applaud the Rimrock Trails Intake Team’s efforts. This dynamic group of individuals is able to connect individuals to services in as little as three days from their first phone call. This is compared to a recent study that shows individuals have to wait an average of 25 days before receiving services.

Thank you, Rimrock Trails Intake Team for all you do to increase access to mental health services for the Central Oregon community!

Meet Our Team

Erin Solomon

Outpatient Program Manager

Rimrock Trail's Outpatient Program Manager answers our questions:
1. How did you come to work at Rimrock Trails?

I worked alongside Katie Keck and Erica Fuller as a community partner for almost two years. I was the project coordinator during the Advancing Integrated Care Project and as my knowledge grew through the education events we coordinated; I gained an understanding that integrating behavioral health into primary care and physical health, in general, was a solid path towards healthier humans and communities. When Katie approached me and said this position was available, I knew it was where I belonged.

2. How did you get here?

I have lived in Central Oregon for over 25 years so I have had a wide range of positions throughout my adult life, adapting to the available options Central Oregon had to offer. I have held positions such as aerobics instructor and gymnastics coach, to running the largest solar company in town as their full-charge bookkeeper. With an AA in Business Administration from COCC, I went back to finish my BS in Exercise & Sports Science (OSU-Cascades). I then followed up with Health & Wellness Coaching through Wellcoaches School of Coaching and nutrition certifications. My passion is understanding people on an individual level to help them achieve their health & life-related goals.
For the past three years, I was blessed to work alongside the Central Oregon Health Council, their Pain Standards Task Force, and Dawn Creach, Creach Consulting, LLC. Through these projects, I found my new passion for integrating behavioral health with our standard (physical) medical care. Encouraging both sectors to work together, and communicate regularly provides the foundation the majority of Americans need to truly thrive in our complicated culture, not just survive. Without a solid understanding of one's mental health, it is difficult to overcome physical health ailments such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and chronic pain. My years of running different-sized businesses in different sectors allow me to approach problem-solving from multiple perspectives. The formal education I hold in health connects me to the importance of properly supporting the clinical side of this business.
4. Tell us about yourself: 

I am a mother, daughter, sister, and auntie. I read every night, usually fiction, as my getaway. Cooking is a fulfilling hobby, however, cleaning up after myself is not my favorite. My two teenage daughters are my world and they are always talking me into doing something embarrassing on Tic-Tok. My daily walk with Steel, our rescue from the Madras shelter is high on my priority list along with paddleboarding in the summer. Even after all of these years in Central Oregon, I still prefer the beach to anything related to snow. Post-COVID I would love to get back to my travel bucket list.
5. What is your vision and hope for the Rimrock Trails Counseling Clinics?
To create a safe and comforting environment for clients when they visit our offices. I want to prioritize coordination of care for our clients to better support their wellness journeys. For our team, I want them to enjoy coming to work every day. To design workflows where they feel empowered, protected and policies that demonstrate we are invested in their professional and personal growth.

Resources For You
The CDC announced last week that people fully vaccinated against Covid-19 no longer need to wear masks or practice social distancing indoors or outdoors, in most circumstances. Though the CDC mask guidance opens up doors for the vaccinated, there is still confusion on what that means for local individuals, families, and healthcare facilities.
