    • Hike the Good Hike With Jesse Cody

      Main Library, Lecture Hall, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, please join us for a presentation about mental health and the healing to be found in nature. Jesse Cody, a Cambridge, MA native currently living in Santa Fe, NM, is the founder of Hike the Good Hike, a movement and non-profit in the making. Over the last several years, he's used his experience of finding mental health and healing in the outdoors as the pillar of this organization. As someone who battled insecurity, depression, and suicidal thoughts for most of his life, this movement is near and dear to his heart. Nature came and found Cody and pulled him out of the darkness. He finally calmed the voices in his head that he spent a lifetime battling and learned to engage with them from a thoughtful and grounded place. Seven years and roughly 9,000 miles of the trail later, he embraces life fully and feels deeply aligned with his purpose. In 2021, Cody's journey was profiled in the Boston Globe. In 2022, Cody and HTGH will launch the Hiking the Good Hike with Jesse Cody podcast, continue to use ongoing hiking treks to raise awareness, and expand partnerships with mental health organizations and wilderness therapy programs.
