Join us at this peer learning forum to discuss the important relationship between nature, the environment and wellbeing. Discover an abundance of creative ideas and activities to promote and embed the benefits during Mental Health Awareness Week and beyond.

COVID-19 has reminded us all of the importance of connecting with nature. It has many health benefits and it is this year’s theme for Mental Health Awareness Week (10-16 May 2021).

This event is invite only and suitable for environment leaders, practitioners, network chairs and those planning activities for Mental Health Awareness Week.

About Mental Health Awareness Week
Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from 10-16 May this year focusing on the theme of nature and the environment. Over the last 20 years, the event has grown to become one of the biggest awareness weeks across the UK and globally. The week is an opportunity for people to talk about all aspects of mental health, with a focus on providing help and advice.

Wellbeing at Business in the Community
Business in the Community (BITC) defines wellbeing as the mutually supportive relationship between an individual’s mental, physical, social and financial health and their personal wellbeing.

Taking a whole organisation approach to embedding wellbeing into an organisational culture is key to achieving maximum impact. Wellbeing should be positioned as a strategic boardroom issue supporting thriving people, thriving business and thriving communities.
