This year, Mental Health Awareness Week focuses on connecting with Nature.

There are many benefits of having contact with nature, whether you spend time in the garden looking at the sky or growing flowers and planting vegetables, or go on a walk through woods or up hills, or have a weekend glamping  or forest bathing!

Spending time with nature can have many benefits:

  1. You can meet other people especially if you volunteer for a conservation charity
  2. You can improve your physical health by going on walks or being physically active through gardening
  3. Volunteering for a nature charity can really give you a feel-good feeling – you’ve made a difference and can meet like-minded people who want to do the same
  4. You could end up going where people don’t always go – sort of getting behind the scenes with nature!
