      Nature Rx: Improving College-Student Mental Health (Virtual Book Talk)

      Stressed out by these uncertain times? Get a healthy dose of outdoor time in nature, says Don Rakow, an associate professor in the Horticulture Section of the School of Integrative Plant Science at Cornell.

      In a book coauthored with Gregory T. Eells, Nature Rx: Improving College-Student Mental Health (Cornell University Press, 2019), Rakow argues that campus programs encouraging students to spend more time outdoors can reduce the stress and anxiety of academic, social, and relationship pressures, particularly for those also dealing with mental health issues, trauma, or substance abuse. In this live Chats in the Stacks webinar, Rakow will discuss the value of Nature Rx programs and present a step-by-step formula for constructing and sustaining them on college campuses.

      A live, moderated question and answer session will follow the talk. The audience is encouraged to submit questions via the Chat window in the webinar.
