mental wellness OUTDOORS program

We are advocates of getting outside and enjoying the fresh air. Studies have shown that consistent outside activities like walking, running, or simply enjoying a nice breeze on the patio lowers this risk of depression and assists with better stress recovery. We’ve created a Mental Wellness Outdoors Program that ranges from yearly walk-a-thons to raise mental wellness awareness to monthly outdoor support groups for camping excursions and COVID-19 safe events.

Further research shows that in just a few minutes after enjoying some fresh air during a walk can have amazing health benefits, including increased positive brain activity in the pleasure sensors of the brain. To learn more about our Mental Wellness Outdoors Program please feel free to email or contact us.
