Most of us feel better after a walk outdoors or at the sight of something beautiful in nature. Dr. Heidi Schreiber-Pan has studied extensively the connection between our well-being and nature. In this presentation she will discuss how nature impacts human resilience and overall mental health, and the role of spirituality in this relationship.

Heidi offers a unique perspective of being both a professional mental health practitioner and outdoor enthusiast. She has taught college courses and lectured across the country, founded a mental health organization, and developed professional training programs--all while raising two teenage boys.
