Main aims and partners
The Highland Green Health Partnership vision is:
To develop opportunities and build on existing resources to support individuals and communities to improve their health and wellbeing, and build resilience through engaging with and appreciating the natural environment.
The Partnership's main aim is to co-ordinate activity across sectors to better connect the delivery of health outcomes with the health-improving potential of the natural environment. It will seek to expand awareness and provision of green health opportunities, with a particular focus on mental health and health inequalities.
The Partnership is made up of representatives from Scottish Natural Heritage, NHS Highland, The Highland Council, The Highland Third Sector Interface, High Life Highland and the University of Highlands and Islands (UHI) as well as representative medical practitioners.
