We're so excited to partner with George Washington University's Art Therapy program and A Place to Be, a nonprofit providing music therapy in Loudoun County, to offer interactive art and music therapy stations at our Annual Walk!
From GWU: 'art therapy is an integrative mental health profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through art-making, creative process, (and) applied psychological theory.' Art therapy can be calming, rewarding, and an important part of the recovery journey for many folks!
A Place to Be is 'an influential therapeutic arts organization' whose music therapy program 'uses music and music-based interventions' to improve both physical and mental health. They strive to 'create an inclusive society where everyone is seen as equal and valuable, with unique gifts and challenges.' Visit naminovawalk.org for more information or to register for the Walk! We hope to see you on Saturday, September 22, at Tysons Corner Center on the Plaza! #naminovawalk #whyiwalk
