Challenge

COVID-19 has and continues to wreak havoc on many individuals physically, the pandemic has also had considerable impact on mental health as well. Due to isolation, change in routine, and loss of recreational activities, many have developed depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges. Currently in the US, 1 in every 4 Americans is diagnosed with a mental health disorder and every 1 in 5 teenagers experience these challenges as well, while thousands are waiting for the help they need.

Solution

Children at BITS safely engage in outdoor therapeutic activities fostering connection, physical activity, and fun. For many of our immune-suppressed or compromised clients these interactions are the only interactions they have all week. Additionally, therapeutic riding and counseling help individuals combat the extra strain COVID-19 places on mental health. These programs arm children and youth with the tools they need to address the challenges they face today and prepares them for the future.

Long-Term Impact

BITS ETC's community of staff, volunteers, clients and supporters work together today so our most vulnerable suffer fewer long-lasting effects of COVID-19. Our clients connect with horses each week, building confidence levels, improving their mental health, and work towards overall wellness. Our programs have a long impact on our clients, especially our youth and children, as we aid them in developing positive coping skills during these difficult times.
