Dr. Beyer Finds that Green Space Contributes to Happiness

Kirsten Beyer, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Institute for Health and Society, is lead author of a study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health that found that the more green space a neighborhood has, the happier people feel. Results from the approximately 2,500-person assessment show areas with more green space had a positive impact on the residents' state of mental health, specifically in regard to stress, anxiety and depression. The study is a result of a collaborative effort with the University of Wisconsin's Survey of the Health of Wisconsin (SHOW) project. WTOP in Washington, DC was one of many news outlets that covered the story.
