On behalf of the Healthy Communities Team at Dudley Council: This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and for this year′s theme everyone is invited to #ConnectWithNature.
Evidence shows that connecting with nature can prevent mental health issues. The benefits of nature have never been more evident than during the pandemic where 45% of us reported that being in green spaces has been vital for our mental health.
This Mental Health Awareness Week, we are celebrating #MyWholeSelf in the great outdoors.
Share a My Whole Selfie and show us how you #ConnectWithNature or host your own activity and share with the Healthy Communities′ Team.
