Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health changes lives – by unlocking and nurturing human potential for people living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.

February is National Recreational Therapy Month

Through your gift, you are contributing to our mission to unlock and nurture human potential in people living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.

February is National Recreational Therapy month and Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health wants to help generate awareness about the positive impact therapeutic recreational programs and services can have on health and wellbeing.

“Through engagement in recreational pursuits, our youth can unlock essential facets of themselves toward more complete wellness,” said Devereux Pennsylvania’s Children’s Behavioral Health Services Executive Director Dr. Rhea Fernandes. “They tap into their self-efficacy, increase their awareness of others, develop a sense of responsibility and community, self-directedness and optimism. Only experience can shape this, and many of our youth have been denied these positive experiences we tend to take for granted.”
