Mental Health Awareness Week 2021

Published on 10 May 2021 08:58 PM

Mental Health Awareness Week

This mental health awareness week is focusing on nature and the benefits it brings to both our physical and mental health. Taking time to appreciate the nature we have nearby, whether that’s a bird outside your window or the ramble in the countryside, affords us the opportunity to take a breath and see the beauty which can easily be overlooked.

Many of us have found our mental health suffered throughout this difficult last year. Staying indoors and local means that we have been unable to enjoy many of the activities and enjoyment of nature we would normally take part in to improve our wellbeing. As restrictions start to ease, a new sense of freedom but also anxiety can cause other mental health worries.

If you have concerns over returning to daily activities such as going to the shops, travelling on public transport or getting to regular exercise opportunities, please get in touch so we can talk you through how we can help. Find the right support for you, at a pace you feel comfortable with as you Step Out and back to life after lockdown.
