Mother Nature nurtures, and this program is living proof of the connection between nature and psychological health.
Located in the heart of Caledon, Ontario- Peace Ranch is a unique transitional housing complex dedicated to mental health recovery for individuals with schizophrenia. This rural environment situated on a 25-acre farm provides individual access to highly trained staff who pair psychological social rehabilitation principles with life skill training and stress management techniques, to successfully empower positive individual development and psychological wellness. Through facilitation of the Green Spaces Day program, individuals are able to assist the community with social recreation opportunities which include on-site Animal Husbandry, Horticulture, Art, Fitness, and Cooking Programs. The integrated approach at Peace Ranch promotes inclusivity and all individuals are encouraged to become a part of the process and, much like nature, remain open to change.
