Mental Health Awarenss Month
Amidst the Pandemic
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.

What does stress look like during a pandemic?

Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations. Stress during an infectious disease outbreak can include:

  • Fear and worry about your health and the health of your loved ones
  • Changes in sleep or eating patterns
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Worsening of mental health conditions
  • Increased use of alcoholtobacco, or other drugs

How can you help yourself, your friends, and your family cope with stress?

If you or a loved one’s mental health is being compromised, there are many ways to cope with stress including:

  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media.
  • Take care of your body with meditation, eating healthy, exercising regularly, and avoid alcohol and drugs.
  • Make time to unwind with other activities you enjoy such as reading a book or watching a movie.
  • Connect with others about how you are feeling and check-in with your loved ones.
  • Keep up with regular routines.
  • Let your children and teens know they are safe and share COVID-19 facts with them in a way they can understand.
  • Arm yourself with COVID-19 facts and be wary of rumors.

Finally, if you are feeling anxious or depressed and these feelings are getting in the way of your daily activities for many days in a row, contact your mental healthcare provider. If you do not have a mental healthcare provider, Rimrock Trail’s diverse group of professionals is here to help! Contact us at (888) 532-6247 or visit our website at .  

We will get through this together!
Thank You To The Rimrock Trails Community
Each day, MAY we wake with gratitude for our advocates and community partners!

Since the COVID-19 outbreak began, we have appealed for funds from the community so that we can respond to Central Oregon’s behavioral health needs in a flexible and timely manner. 

Our community came together and invested over $10,000 in Central Oregon’s behavioral health.

Rimrock Trails Receives $10,000 from the Oregon Community Foundation's Recovery Grant Fund
We are grateful to have received $10,000 in grant funds from the Oregon Community Foundation’s Oregon Small Business Stabilization Fund in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19). This funding supports the work we have underway including providing behavioral health services to the Central Oregon community through Telehealth Counseling and our adolescent Residential Treatment Program for teens with severe substance use concerns.

“In this critical moment, it’s going to take all of us – foundations, nonprofits, private sector, and government at all levels working together to contain the crisis and care for our neighbors. We know that local communities are on the front lines of the crisis. Philanthropy has an important role to play in supporting them, helping to fill the gaps in funding that have quickly become critical across the state.” – The Oregon Community Foundation
Deschutes County United Way Awards Rimrock Trails $5,000 in Grant Funds
We are infinitely thankful to the Deschutes County United Way for awarding us $5,000 to support our Telehealth Counseling Infrastructure during the COVID-19 Crisis.

Thus far, United Way has funded 26 local and regional nonprofits with $112,000 from its local Central Oregon COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. They will continue to award grants weekly to local and regional agencies.
The Roundhouse Foundation Grants Rimrock Trails $500 to Benefit the Teens in our Residential Treatment Program
A huge shoutout of thanks to our long-time supporters at the Roundhouse Foundation for awarding us $500 to support the enrichment activities in our residential treatment program!

The COVID-19 crisis has severely impacted our ability to provide enrichment activities for our teens. Due to sheltering in place, we are no longer able to take them to equine therapy, indoor recreational activities such as bowling and theatrical performances, and off-site outdoor adventures.

The Roundhouse Foundation's award ensures that our teens can participate in innovative on-site activities while working toward their recovery.

This May we would like to thank the team in our Residential Treatment Program.

For nearly three decades we have operated an adolescent residential treatment program in Crook County. Our residential treatment program is one of only five in the State of Oregon and serves adolescents 12-17 years of age with severe substance use and mental health problems. As an essential business, these front-line staff members tirelessly showed up and gave selflessly of themselves for the teens in our program.

“The front line staff worked hard and were extremely determined to make the COVID-19 lockdown the best experience it could be for our clients despite the majority of our experiential programming being eliminated to maintain health and safety. They worked diligently and creatively to bring their strengths and talents to the floor for the teens and team.” – Lacey Sawyer, LCSW, CADC III, LADC, CCS, Residential Clinical Director

The Rimrock Trail’s board and leadership team want to say thank you and we are honored to work with such a fantastic group of individuals.
