Wilderness Therapy is Clinically Proven to be Effective in Treating Serious Mental Health Issues

There is no more significant threat to our nation's youth (including teenage girls from Grass Valley, CA) than mental health-related issues in today's America. Recent polls show that one out of five teens lives with depression, anxiety, or a mixture of the two.

What makes these epidemic-like numbers even more concerning is that suicide is currently the third-leading cause of death among teenagers.

Luckily for parents of depressed teenage girls from the Grass Valley, CA area, wilderness therapy is a research-supported treatment provenly effective in treating depression, anxiety, and stress - more so than more traditional, indoor-based facilities.

As for why outdoor-based treatment programs are better suited to treat mental health-related issues than indoor programs, research says it is a combination of several factors. For example, hiking (an obviously significant part of outdoor-based therapy) is clinically proven to reduce negative thinking patterns and harmful brain activity, known as rumination.

Studies have also shown that when immersed in nature, a teenage girl's brains improve her neuroplasticity, causing them to become increasingly open to receiving therapy.

Navigating the challenging environment of the wilderness also helps form bonds between teens and clinical staff. This organic relational development builds long-lasting trust between teen and their therapist. Developing and building upon the trust between camper and caregiver is a crucial factor when it comes to a mentally ill teenage girl's willingness, ability, and overall likelihood of effectively treating their underlying mental health-related issues.

11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. 16 From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work. - Ephesians 4:11–16
