MENTAL HEALTH MONDAY FOCUSES
ON "ECOPSYCHOLOGY"

 

Looking for next steps after Earth Day?
This free session at Clark College can guide you.

VANCOUVER, Wash. -- You took part in Earth Day, but what do you do now? 

Personal sustainability will be the focus of Clark College’s “Mental Health Monday” event on Monday, April 27. 

Dr. Thomas Doherty of Lewis and Clark College will be the guest speaker.  Dr. Doherty is a leader in the field and is the editor-in-chief of “Ecopsychology,” a new quarterly journal.  He has said that ecopsychology “expands our conception of health and wellness to include a connection with nature.”

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held from noon to 1 p.m. in the Penguin Student Lounge, located in Clark’s Penguin Union Building.  Clark College is located at 1933 Fort Vancouver Way.  Driving directions and parking maps are available at www.clark.edu/maps
