Personal Resilience: The Mental & Physical Benefits of Open Space

March 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Dr. Heidi Schrieber-Pan, Ph.D., LCPC, NCC, ACS, Chesapeake Mental Health Collaborative and Dr. Jennifer D. Roberts, DrPH, MPH, University of Maryland

Open space can help increase personal resilience. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped reveal the true value of the outdoors and public spaces. From recreation and nutrition, to mental clarity and much more, open space and access to nature can provide numerous benefits. However those benefits and access to greenspace has not historically been distributed equally or equitably for many people of color. Join Dr. Heidi Schrieber-Pan and Jennifer D. Roberts to delve into how open space can be a positive, transformational, place for all. Learn about nature’s ability to help individuals reduce anxiety and depression and improve overall wellness, while also learning how you can help your community understand and overcome historical and contemporary barriers that have led to unequal access for African Americans and other marginalized communities.
