Into The Wild

Bonus Episode -Nature & Mental Health with The Mental Health Foundation

May 12, 2021

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week & in the last 12 months, we have never been more aware & protective of our mental health. This year The Mental Health Foundation has selected Nature as their theme & boy do I understand the importance nature can hold in protecting my head!

On this bonus episode I talk with Bethan Buswell, Social Media Manager at the Mental Health Foundation about why the Mental Health Foundation chose ‘Nature’ as the theme for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week - why being around nature is good for your mental health, how connecting to nature can help prevent mental health problems and why everyone should have access to nature to achieve good mental health for all. We also chat about how important nature has been to people’s life during the pandemic all around the world.

Ensure to share your nature stories on social media using the hashtag #ConnectWithNature and #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek.
