Presentation Examines Mental Health’s Connection to Nature

Jennifer Hurst, associate professor of health and exercise sciences, will present “Nature: The Truly Natural Treatment for Mental Health” at 4 p.m. Nov. 1 in Magruder Hall 2001. This presentation will explore research on the positive role nature has in maintaining psychological well-being and cognitive processing.

With growing concerns about mental health in both adolescents and adults, the scope of preventative actions and treatments has broadened. Hurst will explain why people need to have a connection with nature and the possible implications on mental health when that connection is lost. This discussion is sponsored by the School of Health Sciences and Education.
