The Yogi OT
The Nevada Occupational Therapy Association is proud to be partnering with The Yogi OT℠ (@theyogiot) to organize a team for the National Eating Disorder Association’s (NEDA) Fall 2021 Virtual walk!
30 million Americans struggle with an eating disorder at some point in their lives. Despite their increasing prevalence, eating disorders receive significantly less funding than other major mental illnesses, and support options are often inaccessible. As a result, too many families are left feeling helpless, hopeless, and frightened – this is where we come in. Through NEDA Walks, we are raising critical funds, restoring hope, and changing the conversation surrounding eating disorders.
Your fundraising efforts are putting vital resources into the hands of those in need, and catalyzing prevention, cures, and access to quality care. With every dollar raised, we are one step closer to our shared vision of a world without eating disorders.

We seek to advance and advocate for the profession and practice of occupational therapy.
We also strive to further educational opportunities, increase professional engagement of occupational therapy practitioners, promote evidence-based practice, and align ourselves with the practice standards established by AOTA.
We aim to be:
Creative: We aim to use all available resources, including feedback from team members, to improve our practice. We encourage collaboration and imagination. We are lifelong learners in search of opportunities to grow.
Intentional: We will incorporate evidence-based practices and teachings, reflect on our current practices, pivot when necessary, execute with polish, and celebrate achievements.
Advocates: We will support each other and our personal/professional contacts to improve access and quality of occupational therapy services. We will highlight our strengths and other’s strengths to support engagement in occupations, for learners, professionals, or consumers. We will be persistent, transparent, and proactive.
Diverse and Inclusive: We aim to include diverse backgrounds, viewpoints, and experiences to our community. We hope to create a space that fosters growth, respect, and belonging.
