Stories from the Field: Mental Health and the Outdoors

Oct 27, 2021

The cost of wilderness therapy treatment is expensive, yet several organizations will help. In this second of two episodes, we hear stories from leaders of non-profit organizations that help families by providing funds to help pay for wilderness therapy treatment. We talk with John Hunt from Jason William Hunt Foundation, Liz Bounds from the Parker Bounds Johnson Foundation, and Derek Daley from the Loa Fund. We will hear about the history of the organizations, how to apply for funds, and other resources.


Organizations in this episode have specific guidelines for funding. Please check their websites and donate if you can.

The Jason William Hunt Foundation provides funds for wilderness therapy for teens and young adults from all over the country. 

The Parker Bounds Johnson Foundation provides funds for young people ages 10-30 who live in the States of Oregon and Washington for wilderness therapy treatment all over the country.

The LOA Fund provides funds for young adults (ages 18 to 30) to attend wilderness therapy treatment.
