Ecotherapy at Butler

Why Ecotherapy?

Ecotherapy is a mental health practice that involves engagement with the natural environment to work through mental health challenges and increase wellness. There are many forms of ecotherapy, including horticultural therapy, animal-assisted therapy, walking meditation, forest bathing, and more. While it is not a solution for advanced mental health challenges on its own, ecotherapy is an accessible practice for mental health protection and overall wellness. It can be as easy as stepping outside and breathing. You can try ecotherapy right here on campus! Use Ecotherapy Trails, either Route 1 or Route 2 to get you started.
