Mental Health Awareness Week
This week we have joined the 'Mental Health Foundation's' initiative to help provide young people with the tools and knowledge to help manage their mental health. They aim to prompt people into thinking about those things in life which are important to their well-being.
From a research study taken place during the pandemic results showed going for walks outside was one of our top coping strategies and 45% of the study reported that being in green spaces had been vital for our mental health. Therefore the Foundation decided to make the theme of the week Nature.
We love being outdoors and exploring our local environment at Seahouses so we are loving this theme. We have taken part in mindfulness walks and activities that allow us to take the time to make a connection and recognise nature. We have discussed and shared our experiences of being outdoors and being with nature.
