Taking care of ourselves and our community through nature
CFI’s free Mental Health Hikes provide a safe space for members of the community to spend time in nature and learn skills to improve physical, mental, and emotional well being. Give yourself an opportunity to exercise body, mind, and heart while building community in nature.
Two Programs Per Month
Mental Health Hikes take place on one Wednesday and one Sunday of each month. See Trip Narrative for specific dates.
Wednesday programs are short, focused lessons that take place from 6 – 8pm in outdoor locations close to Moab. Snacks are included, and our group will meet at each location
On Sundays, we will host a day long, in-depth lesson on that month’s theme. The program will involve hiking, slowing down, and building community. These programs will begin and end at CFI, and include a free lunch and a shuttle to the location.
See the Trip Narrative below for more information on our monthly themes.
Advanced registration is required!
Connect to Nature
Immersion in nature is essential to the human spirit. Connection to place can foster self-awareness while restoring balance and perspective.
Free Community Events
Thanks to generous supporters from the Moab Community, these hikes are completely free! The 2023 Mental Health Hike Series was funded through support from Grand County Economic Development, WabiSabi, and Moonflower. If you or your business is interested in supporting access to these valuable programs, please contact Alison Anders, email@example.com.
Learning about and discussing mental health can be an intense emotional experience. Please prepare yourself to engage with other participants respectfully.
While this event is free, consider supporting CFI's efforts to provide the Moab community with more free opportunities to spend time outside like this one.
