Mental Health Awareness week is taking place from Monday the 10th- 16th May 2021 and the theme this year is nature. The evidence is clear that access to nature is crucial for our mental health and millions of people have re-discovered that during lockdowns this year. However, this is not the same for all of us. The Mental Health Foundation are hosting the global event and want us to explore what the barriers are and ensure everyone is able to share in the natural world and experience the mental health benefits. The week is an opportunity for people to talk about all aspects of mental health, with focus on providing help and advice. The week will be an opportunity to open our eyes to the power of nature.
