Outdoor therapy for PTSD

An Edmonton veteran has taken up paddle boarding as a way to cope with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  He's paddling along a fur trade route from Edmonton to Winnipeg in a journey that will take a month and a half. This CBC article explains why he's doing it and how paddle boarding helps him manage his PTSD.  

Other veterans are taking to the outdoors to process and decompress after returning home from missions. In the US, veterans can "walk off the war" by hiking for six months across the country. You can read about that on the Warrior Hike website.
