The Community Mental Health Association of Michigan endorses 906AT’s lessons to build children’s character, provide coping skills, and promote their ability to adapt to challenges they will face moving into adulthood. As Directors of county-based community mental health programs in Michigan, we support the mission of this organization and its efforts in mentoring and building greater resiliency in children. The benefits of physical activity on improved mental well-being are well documented. By providing opportunities for children to find a passion for bicycling and being outdoors, the 906 Adventure Team is helping them to build confidence in themselves and bond with others while “doing hard things”. These lessons build character and give children skills to cope and adapt to the many challenges they will face moving into adulthood.
