Mental Health Awareness Week: 10th - 16th May


Why Nature?

Nature is so central to our psychological and emotional health, that it’s almost impossible to realise good mental health for all without a greater connection to the natural world.  Spending time in green space or bringing nature into your everyday life can benefit both your mental and physical wellbeing. It can:

  • improve your mood
  • reduce feelings of stress or anger
  • help you take time out and feel more relaxed
  • improve your physical health by helping you to be more active

The aim for this week is to inspire more people to connect with nature in new ways, noticing the impact that this connection can have for their mental health.

We would love for you to get involved!

During Mental Health Awareness Week, we are asking you to experience nature: take time to recognise and grow your connection with nature during the week. Take a moment to notice and celebrate nature in your daily life. You might be surprised by what you notice!
