According to a study conducted by the American Psychological Association(2014) and reported by the American Institute of Stress, 77% of people indicated that they regularly experience physical symptoms caused by stress, 73% reported regularly experiencing psychological symptoms caused by stress and 33% feel they are living with extreme stress. These statistics are staggering and are concerning for anyone hoping to function in today’s society. The pressures of parenting and working continue to rise as we find ourselves pushing to be better at work and as available as possible to our children, spouses, friends and family. The odds of burnout, stress and mental illness as a result are high. While anyone suffering from mental health concerns should seek medical help and work with their physician to discuss and determine the most appropriate treatment as possible, involvement in Wilderness Therapy can be a meaningful and effective alternative to more traditional, office-based options.
Wilderness Therapy allows clients to benefit from the outdoor world full of fresh air and absent of technology. It enables them to connect with others and engage without distractions.
Wellness Outside the Box combines theoretical and evidence-based therapeutic methods with work in nature. This allows the “whole” person to benefit from the therapeutic experience. Taking the challenges of time management and the cost of therapy into consideration, Wellness Outside the Box offers options to allow clients to participate in full-day retreats.
