Leading Edge: Countryside Rangers - Maximising inclusiveness in events and nature spaces for mental health benefits

4 December 2019 - Sharing Good Practice (SGP)

The mental health benefits of being outdoors and connecting with nature are increasingly well recognised. To ensure that everyone is able to access and enjoy the outdoors, we need to consider different needs and provide appropriate adjustments and support for those who need it. 

This Sharing Good Practice event looked at maximising inclusiveness in outdoor events and nature spaces to enable everyone to participate and experience mental health benefits. It was a fully participative day of sharing ideas, techniques, experiences and opportunities for working with people with various mental health problems.
