The Benefit of Pet Friendly Mental Health Treatment

My experience is in no way unique. Studies show an immense array of benefits conferred by dog ownership; as one research cohort notes in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, “There is considerable evidence that pets benefit the lives of owners, both psychologically and physically, by serving as an important source of social support.” According to research by Krista Marie Clark Line of the University of Missouri-Columbia, people are “less likely to suffer from Depression if they own a dog,” particularly single people and women pet friendly mental health facilities near me.

The CDC found that children living in homes with dogs are less likely to experience stress and anxiety. And for people with preexisting mental illness, dog ownership can significantly increase vital quality of life parameters. In fact, even brief interactions with dogs can provide deep comfort and improve the well-being of people struggling with acute psychological pain, which is why specially trained therapy dogs are dispatched to sites of mass trauma, supporting people affected by horrific events.
