GET FOLKS FISHING FOUNDATION
FOR MENTAL HEALTH & SOCIAL WELLNESS
RECREATIONAL FISHING AS THERAPY
Our mission begins with our name. We strive to get folks fishing for mental health and social wellness. Every human can benefit from the positive effects of recreational fishing on mind, body, and community, and we partner with like-minded brands and individuals to help communicate this message.
PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS
The global pandemic and world events have caused a mental health crisis affecting every one of all ages and backgrounds. Studies show a nearly 300% increase in mental illness and substance abuse since 2019.
WELLNESS BENEFITS OF RECREATIONAL FISHING
Studies have shown that fishing can be as effective as meditation in reducing anxiety and improving mood. And because it requires patience and focus, fishing can also help to sharpen your attention and problem-solving skills. Being in nature, around water, is relaxing and therapeutic. As you disconnect from devices and life’s everyday hustle, you reconnect with others, family, and friends, both old and new.
HOW GFF FOUNDATION MAKES AN IMPACT
A recent survey revealed that only 18% of people in America fish. That’s 82% of the population who could be experiencing all the benefits of recreational fishing. To reach as many of these folks as possible, GFF created a national media campaign drive through Lunkerville’s broadcast and streaming partners and popular social media channels to inform, entertain, engage, and inspire them to get out fishing for better mental health and community.
