“Eric Krawczyk’s Nature Treatment is a program in collaboration with healthcare providers, land managers and community partners that offers a natural alternative to medicine.”

 

“In my line of work over the decades, I’ve seen the benefits of time outside playing, hiking, enjoying nature — something our county has a lot of,” says Krawczyk, a licensed mental health counselor and certified Forest Therapy Guide in Great Barrington, Mass. Having moved here from Colorado three years ago, he found the area a challenging environment for our healthcare system.

 

“We get the least resources from the state, and our primary care doctors really struggle to meet the needs of the community,” he says. Nature Treatment is an initiative to collaborate with healthcare providers to prescribe nature as a healing modality.”(Rural Intelligence)
