MBCLA is wrapping up the first year of our Yoga for Veterans project providing healing yoga for veterans in six sites. We are proud and honored to have been approved for a second round of expanded services for veterans in those same parishes as well as the staff who work with them. We'll be facilitating yoga, meditation and introducing Tai-Chi classes and workshops. Veterans have reported positive outcomes including improved sleep and reduced pain as a result of these classes.
MBCLA will also be providing intensive outpatient mind-body skills groups to the Homeless in Baton Rouge in collaboration with O'Brien House and the Capital Area Alliance for the Homeless. Louisiana was one of four states to be awarded grant funding through SAMHSA to address the mental health needs of the Homeless who are experiencing addiction and mental illness.
MBCLA continues to provide workshops and seminars to a variety of organizations including Teach for America, DePaul Hospital, and Louisiana Public Health Institute.
