Center for Nature Informed Therapy Receives $1200 Annual Donation Commitment for Nature Training Program for Mental Health Professionals

TOWSON, MARYLAND, BALTIMORE, January 18, 2022 / -- The Center for Nature Informed Therapy (CNIT) received an anonymous, yearly donation of $1,200 for scholarships to the Center’s premiere Nature Informed Therapy (NIT) training for mental health professionals. The scholarship was provided by a past course participant who was inspired and encouraged by attending the three-month NIT training program and believes in the program’s positive, global effects. In collaboration with the donor's wishes, the money has been earmarked for scholarships for individuals of the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous People of Color) and the global communities.

“I have nothing but gratitude and excitement related to this donation and our generous donor,” comments Zoe Jack, the Manager of Program and Partnership Development for CNIT. “This will allow even more individuals and communities to access the tremendous benefits that skilled nature informed therapy can provide.” The scholarship will broaden the reach of the program into even more communities and geographical locations, reflecting the mission of CNIT and of nature-informed therapy itself which highlights the ability of nature to transform and renew people’s mental well-being.
