Creating Welcoming Park Environments: Inclusion of Individuals with Mental Health Conditions

May 25, 2022 2:00pm to 3:30pm EDT

Presented by the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center, a project of TransCen, Inc.

Parks are well known for their beneficial impact on physical and mental health. Is your park welcoming to the nearly 1 in 5 people who experience a mental health condition? This session will introduce the idea of welcoming parks, and identify actionable strategies for intentionally including individuals who experience mental health conditions. It will also highlight a new resource entitled "Creating Welcoming Parks and Recreation Environments," a 7-module training that focuses on specific strategies to foster parks that are welcoming to everyone. 

Speaker: Dr. Gretchen Snethen, Associate Director, Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion
