Rimrock Trails Treatment Services and its 64 employees are committed to creating lasting change in the lives of individuals and families in Central Oregon by providing timely access to evidence-based and affordable mental health services. They make available vital services for many of Central Oregon’s rural, underserved and vulnerable children, teens, adults, and families who are struggling with mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety relating to complex co-occurring problems including trauma, parental substance use, abuse, and/or violence. Mental health and substance use issues are primary public health issues facing the Central Oregon community. It is estimated that 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 6 youth experience a mental health illness yet only 44.8% of those adults and 50.6% of the youth receive treatment. In addition, mental health concerns have increased substantially over the course of the last several months, as the pandemic drastically changed lives. Increases in depression and anxiety are hovering in the double digits and it is estimated that the demand for mental health services has increased by 48% due to the crisis.
Access to quality and effective behavioral health services is imperative to creating healthy, resilient, and thriving communities. This year Rimrock Trails is on track to provide over 7,000 behavioral health services in their Bend, Prineville, and Redmond outpatient counseling clinics. These services include individual, group, and family therapy, peer support services connecting individuals to vital community services, comprehensive care management, disordered eating, and substance use disorder treatment. As a nonprofit human services agency, Rimrock relies on support from the community and its partners to strategically meet the clients where they are at. Supporting Harvesting Hope will help ensure that individuals and families in Central Oregon have access to quality, affordable healthcare where individuals have the opportunity to maximize their mental and emotional health and are able to lead independent and productive lives.
