Mental Health Awareness Week

Primrose Hill Community Association

Nature and the Environment, 10–16 May

Mental Health Awareness Week was established by the Mental Health Foundation twenty-one years ago and continues to be an annual opportunity for the whole of the UK to focus on mental health. Each year the Foundation sets a theme, which this year is Nature and the Environment.

We instinctively know that we feel better for spending time in nature, even if we do not know why. This week of presentations and conversations will be a chance for us to improve our understanding and experience of the healing power of nature.

“If we speak of things as inert or inanimate objects, we deny their ability to actively engage and interact with us – we foreclose their capacity to reciprocate our attentions, to draw us into silent dialogue, to inform and instruct us.”
