Mental Health Awareness Week is coming up soon; from 10 to 15 May. The theme of the week is ‘Connecting with Nature’ which links with our month’s wellbeing focus: ‘Valuing our Place’.
Connecting with nature is about building a relationship with nature by noticing and becoming sensitive to the environment around us. This has benefits for both our physical and mental health. We can look after nature and nature can look after us.
The appreciation of nature and the beautiful area in which we live is also highlighted in the Trust’s monthly photography competition. CET Cumbrian Landscape Photography Competition – March entries.
