Mount Hood is a famous mountain in the Northwest part of the United States and it shows up in many of the scenic photographs and portraits of Portland Oregon. With Mt Hood's proximity to the city, its residents can go skiing pretty much anytime of the year as the elevation is such the glacier keeps snow all year. Mount Hood is just one of the mountain peaks in the greater city area and there is ample opportunity for climbing, hiking, kayaking, fishing, and hunting.1 The breathtaking Columbia River is nearby, and usually one can find any number of recreational watercraft with families and children enjoying the outdoors. The mild coastal weather is a real plus for wildlife in the region and the deer and elk populations do very well year round. As a result, hunters find excellent access to quality animals although it is a well kept secret that coastal Oregon is excellent for big game hunting.

Mental Health in Portland

Approximately 137,000 Oregon residents live with a serious mental illness, a large percentage of which live in the Portland area. Access to quality, affordable mental health care can be difficult to come by for these individuals. Only about 43 percent of those in need of behavioral health care actually receive it. Although that rate is higher than many areas, it is still insufficient. As a result, many children and adults who have a mental illness are incarcerated in area jails and prisons.2

The Portland Rescue Mission seeks to help the city's homeless population overcome the issues that contributed to their homelessness. The mission provides food, clothing, shelter, mail service, restrooms, and referral services. Additionally, the mission offers spiritual guidance, life skills training, and addiction recovery services to help consumers overcome their struggles. For those who are ready to re-enter the community, the mission provides housing, employment services, and after-care to ensure that clients remain off the streets. Further information is available by calling 503-647-7466.3
