Taking place from 10-16 May 2021, the theme for 2021’s Mental Health Awareness Week is ‘Nature and the Environment.’ If the past year has taught us anything, it’s the life-affirming benefits of being outdoors. During monotonous days when it felt like our worlds were standing still, the changing landscapes and cycle of nature were a comforting reassurance and marvel on our daily walks. Whether you’re an urbanite or country-dweller, our workshops below – especially curated for Mental Health Awareness Week, will ensure that everyone has the tools to reap the plentiful benefits and power of nature.
60% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from household consumption. Learn how to make small, simple changes that have a big impact reducing your carbon emissions. Lead by a best-selling sustainability coach and author.
Whether you’re a city dweller and surrounded by acres of countryside, this workshop explores the importance of our connection to nature and simple ways that you can use mindfulness to help bring this connection into your day.
“Shinrin-Yoku” is the Japanese practice of immersing yourself in nature whilst gently engaging all of the senses. Delivered by a duo of leading Shinrin Yoki teachers and Ecotherapists, this 60 minute talk will open your eyes to the abundant healing and wellbeing benefits of trees and connecting to nature.
It’s well known that getting green-fingered can help us slow down, be more present, reduce stress and connect with nature. Each of our terrarium and flower bouquet workshops last 60 mins and each participant will receive their kit containing everything they need for the workshop in the post prior to the event.
You may also wish to make the most of Mental Health Awareness Week to launch some mental health workshops, training and initiatives at your workplace. See our Mental Health at Work offerings here.
