Nature and mental health

Stephen Whitten

Nature is something God gives to us to enjoy and it can also be really helpful in supporting good mental health. Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week is taking place between 10-16 May 2021 and this year’s theme is ‘nature’!

Stephen Whitten has seen nature support good mental health first-hand through the Glencairn Community Garden in North Belfast. Watch his video to hear more about what’s happening at this community garden…

You can also read George* and Peter*’s stories to hear how the community garden has been important to them, particularly during the pandemic.
