Surf Therapy Making Waves In The Fight Against Mental Illness
While it hasn’t yet been recognised as an official form of treatment, participants of surf therapy have been seeing the benefits. The idea behind surf therapy is to create a more accessible environment to seek mental health support as an alternative to more traditional forms of therapy. The Waves of Wellness Foundation is a mental health and surf therapy charity who run programs using this stimulative form of therapy which looks to promote social inclusion while also exercising the mind and body.
We were joined on the Wednesday Daily by Mark Micelli from the Waves of Wonder Foundation to discuss the benefits surfing has for ones mental well-being.
