Atlanta Braves Donate $8,400 to Skyland Trail

Skyland Trail, a nationally recognized nonprofit mental health treatment organization, received a donation of $8,400 from the Atlanta Braves. The funds will be used for evidence-based mental health treatment programs for teens and adults at Skyland Trail.

Blooper, the Atlanta Braves mascot, raised $4,200 in donations through seat visits during the final 2023 homestand. The Atlanta Braves Foundation generously matched that amount.

In November, Blooper visited the Skyland Trail adult campus to present the funds, meet staff, tour the Rollins and West campuses, and say hello to clients.

Clients benefit from evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as well as holistic wellness programs like art, music, and horticultural therapy; fitness and nutrition counseling; and vocational and academic services.

The Atlanta Braves Foundation awarded Skyland Trail a grant for $10,000 in 2022.
