There is nothing quite like catching a wave in the cold waters of the Great Lakes. Surf therapy is a globally growing mental health support, and those of us at Third Coast Rising realized Lake Michigan has been that for us, and we wanted to bring surf therapy to the fresh coast.
It's our goal at Third Coast Rising to provide mental health support for those experiencing PTSD, anxiety, depression, and other trauma symptoms in the veteran and first responder communities.
Our 8 week programs combine mind and body support through small groups with a licensed counselor and time out on the water with surf instructors. We provide the wetsuits and boards; you show up ready to explore possibility for growth and community. If you're a first responder or veteran, come join us out on the water!
