Horticultural  Workshop

 

You may already know that being in nature can have awesome effects on our bodies as we breathe cleaner air and activate our absorption of Vitamin D from the sun.  But, did you know that there are also many mental health benefits from nature, as well?

Here are some ways that being in nature helps us:

*Reduction in stress, anxiety and depression

*Restorative effects from mental illness

*Increase in focus and attention

*Increase in relaxation

*Improved mood

*Increased resilience

*Increased self-esteem

*Increased connections and social interactions

Join our Clinical Counselor, Amber Kelley, to learn more about the mental health benefits of nature!  She will offer a different activity each session and all supplies will be provided.  You can attend one, several, or all of the workshops.
