HOW WE CAN HELP
Many veterans returning from military deployment experience stress- or trauma-related symptoms that make reintegration with civilian society difficult. Nature exposure and outdoor recreation can be important parts of alternative and complementary approaches to reduce symptoms and build on veterans’ and first responders pre-existing strengths.
Researchers are increasingly studying the benefits of such outdoor adventures, recreation therapy, and nature exposure, which has been proven to increase oxygen levels and lower cortisol and stress.
