Nature is this year’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week

Being in nature can be good for our mental health. It can have a calming and restorative effect, reducing stress and blood pressure, and helping us feel more creative and productive. Nature can also help bring some relief to mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.

So it’s little wonder then that Nature is the theme for this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week (10th-16th May).
