"The Y is family focused, affordable, and accessible to everyone."

Everyone needs the YMCA. Being a licensed psychotherapist whose practice is just down the street from the Y, I have always referred patients there. There is an abundance of scientific proof that exercise is of great benefit to your life, especially to help with anxiety and depression, and the benefits certainly don’t end there.

The Y is family focused, affordable, and accessible to everyone. It’s also a community of people working toward common goals – mainly, improving their health in some way.  As I approach my 70th birthday, I consider being a member of the Y an integral part of maintaining my own health.  The Y continues to prove that we need exercise, and community, for a great life.
