The theme of Mental Health Awareness Week 2021, which runs from 10-16 May, is Nature.
Numerous studies have shown that connecting with nature, whether it’s striding along the London Loop or tending a houseplant, can have a hugely positive impact on our mental wellbeing. If the past year has taught us anything, it’s the life-affirming benefits of the natural world. When it seemed as if the world was standing still, the continuing cycle of nature offered reassurance and hope.
To celebrate Mental Health Awareness Week, we’ve created a wealth of resources to help you get the most from nature.
- Explore the glorious green spaces of the three boroughs we serve, Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich.
- Raise awareness of and funds for mental health issues by taking on our Three Boroughs circular walk, specially devised for Mental Health Awareness Week.
- Join one of our free nature and wellbeing sessions featuring everything from urban foraging to visualising the natural world.
- Submit your photographs of flora and fauna to our Nature Photography Celebration.
