Mental Health Awareness Week

Forest scene
This week is a #mentalhealthawarenessweek, a yearly event that aims to bring awareness and support to the millions of us around the world who experience an issue with our mental health. 

The theme for this years event is nature, so we have put together this handy list for some inspiration.

 After this past year of lockdown, there’s no better time to get out and connect with the natural environment around you. 

Top tips:

It doesn’t have to be far

Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to go far from home, there is often some great outside space close to home. Why not check out this lists of parks in Bristol for inspiration https://visitbristol.co.uk/things-to-do/parks-and-gardens.

Focus on yourself 

Take this time away from your everyday life to have a moment of quiet with yourself. This year has been hectic, and it can be hard to grab a moments peace at home. 

Break some habits

Removing yourself from your everyday routine is an excellent way of separating yourself from things that may potentially trigger negative thoughts or behaviours.


Worried about your own or someone else’s mental health?

Get in touch to discuss to talk to a member of staff about some of the support options available.
