The May edition of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation Quarterly publication contains a two-page feature on HIKE for Mental Health. Hooray! We are extremely honored to be connected with this fine organization that has lead the battle for better understanding of and treatments for mental illnesses for so many decades.
As the article says, research is the key to improved understanding, which in turn will lead to elimination of the stigma. That is why we dedicate 80% of funds raised from our hikes to the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. They in turn convert 100% of the donations they receive into research grants and programs. (The other 20% of our hike donations go to conservation of trails such as the AT and PCT.)
