Well Being In Nature

The Wellbeing in Nature project runs free, friendly sessions that are open to anyone who experiences poor mental health. It is based on the huge amount of evidence about the benefits that being outdoors in a natural environment can bring to everyone’s mental health.

 

Sessions run from 10.30am – 1.30pm on Friday. The activities vary and are suggested by participants, but always include a cup of tea (or similar) in the Linklater Pavilion and a walk on the nature reserve.

 

The project is based on the principles of co-design. As well as the sessions themselves, the project is

 

  • Working to develop a network of organisations that provide nature-based activities to support mental wellbeing in and around the Lewes District

  • Linking up with the growing social prescribing movement

  • Working with students, academics and experts in evaluation to develop a rigorous and appropriate approach to demonstrating the difference this work can make to people’s wellbeing

  • Developing a cohort of well-trained volunteers to support the sessions
