I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness, draw understanding, empathy and conserve wilderness trails. There is so much misunderstanding around the words mental illness; we need to educate and support those who suffer. Exploring the gift of the great outdoors given to us is a great coping mechanism for the mind.
