Ohio man kayaking the Mississippi for mental health

“The way I look at it, they are the future leaders of this country,” he said. “So why not get them into the outdoors and have an appreciation for Mother Nature and what she has to offer for us.”  He’s also fundraising for Adventure Crew, a Cincinnati organization that takes kids from inner-city schools into nature.  People can follow his journey on Facebook and Instagram. 

He said many people don’t have a voice in their own mental health conditions, and he wants to be both an advocate and a source of hope. “It took a good six years to get back to some semblance of normalcy,” he said. “I started paddling to get that nature healing plus I was like, well why don’t I just represent others as well that have mental health conditions to let them know that they’re not alone and that we’re all in this together.”

“Basically, what I’m talking about out here is love and community around somebody with a mental health condition can help them to live a better life,” Solomon said. “I’m a prime example of that. There’s been a lot of love and community around me that has helped me to thrive with this horrible mental condition that I have.” But Solomon is not deterred. He found peace through paddling after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia in 2012.
