Recreational Therapy Month: Helping youth, adults with special needs stay active/engaged

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 Recreational Therapy Month and Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health wants to highlight the significant impact recreational activities can have on individuals living with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences.

“Recreational therapy is designed to help youth and adults improve their overall quality of life,” said Devereux Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical/Medical Officer Yolanda Graham, M.D. “By participating in recreational activities on regular basis, either one-on-one or in a group, the individuals we serve have the opportunity to realize their inherent strengths; learn new skills; achieve their goals and, most importantly, have fun.”

Collaboration is key


In March 2020, Devereux created a National Recreation Committee comprised of recreation specialists from across the organization. The committee meets virtually every week to share creative and effective ways to keep the individuals in their care engaged.

“This has been especially important during COVID-19 as we look for fun, innovative and safe ways to help our individuals stay active,” explained Devereux Colorado Recreation Programs Manager Alex Dorsam, M.S.
