Howdy there —
I’m hosting the #TakeoverTuesday on May 14th, 2019 for ATRA.
I’ll be posting a few videos and pictures about Recreational Therapy at our psychiatric hospital in Huntington, West Virginia at the ATRA facebook, Instagram, and twitter pages.
There will be a few short videos with some of our Recreational Therapists about the population we serve and the evidenced-based practices that we use to help bring about the best outcomes.
