THE STORY:

We are attempting to gain resources to become an animal assistance team for mental health therapy.  Many mental health challenges and psychiatric disorders are known to respond well to therapy dogs. Patients diagnosed with a range of issues such as depression, bipolar disorder, autism, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and even Alzheimer's Disease are found to benefit from their interaction with therapy dogs. Studies have shown that such interaction can increase oxytocin and dopamine (both hormones that help elevate one's mood) and decrease cortisol, the stress hormone. Further, dogs can show a level of support unsurpassed by other animals (including humans).
