I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health to help stamp out the stigma of mental illness and conserve wilderness trails.
Hiking and being in nature is a spiritual and therapeutic experience for me and gives me peace and solace. I know I’m not alone when I say we all get stressed, have anxiety, or get depressed, especially the way the world is now with the pandemic. I feel so blessed to be able to hike and go to such beautiful, wild places that are protected for all of us to enjoy. Hiking is healing and I’m happy to be a part of this group!
