The nature-filled Recharge Rooms support health and resilience by providing immersive natural surroundings with music, scent, lighting, and sound. These spaces are designed to address trauma, anxiety, and stress, and aim to improve cognitive performance among health care workers.
Dr. Putrino and a team of researchers recently published their observations on the Recharge Rooms in Frontiers in Psychology, writing, “Results from this program evaluation illustrate dramatic reductions in perceived stress following brief exposure to a multisensory immersive Recharge Room.”
The program is supported by the Office of Well-Being and Resilience at Mount Sinai, and was made possible through the generosity of the Joseph F. Cullman, Jr. Institute for Patient Experience and the Charles Lazarus Children’s Abilities Center.
