Discovery Ranch’s integrative approach to mental health includes addressing the dietary needs of our students. Research reveals a direct link between our diets and mood. The food your daughter eats affects her mood, behavior, and her brain function. Many mental health concerns stem from poor self-care related to inadequate nutrition such as under or over eating.
On-Site Nurse and Professional Chef
Discovery Ranch’s nurse and head chef make sure that our students are eating balanced diets and are learning how to continue healthy eating once they return home. We help our girls function better mentally and emotionally by addressing their physical needs.
Balanced Diet, Balanced Living
Discovery Ranch brings balance back to our girls’ lives by promoting a healthy lifestyle based on wellness. Wellness is a balance of physical, mental, spiritual, social, and emotional elements in life and making positive choices in these areas. We integrate Dialectical Behavior Therapy concepts of mindful eating in each girl’s life to develop patterns of healthy eating and to prevent a lifestyle of ongoing dieting. Mindful eating helps girls bring balance back into their lives regarding their relationship with food and their body.
