2021 Mental Health Awareness week 10th - 16th May
We are challenging ourselves and you to get out and get muddy boots and wet wellies wherever you can. Taking notice of the nature around you, connecting with friends and family, being active and learning about nature are all proven ways of improving your wellbeing and mental health.
We want you to take videos and photos of those muddy boots and the beautiful places! Inspire others to use nature for wellbeing!
Here are some ideas from our staff & places to go.
The Ramblers Association has an interactive map listing places to go for a walk in Conwy Find a walk or route – Ramblers
Outdoor attractions – Visit Conwy Has lots of ideas for things to do in the natural world.
To mark Mental Health Awareness week’s theme of “Nature” Conwy Mind are running free wellbeing training sessions.
We are offering Nature’s Five Ways to Wellbeing for this week only.
The session is 60 minutes long and will cover all of the five ways but taking particular notice of the way the natural world can be used either by you or those you support.
Here are some quotes form participants on our Five Ways course:
“Puts something like 5 ways into perspective and that it can be simple and achievable to all . Good for others to get out of their comfort zone and to try something new and feel that they have done something , however simple/small . Thank you”
“Informative course that was applicable to my job. Skills that I can use on a daily basis both with individuals I am working with and myself personally to bolster resilience.”
