It's Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 this week and the theme is nature. I think we have come to appreciate the importance of the natural world that we live in during the past year of us all struggling with the covid-19 pandemic. Being stuck at home with work, kids, families, the same old films and TV every week has helped us appreciate the power and impact that nature and our fellow animals can have on our wellbeing and mental health. Of course, many have not been lucky enough to be able to access a garden or outside space at all, and we have heard from many of our clients the difficulties that has led to with regards their mental health. Getting outdoors, even if just to hear the birds sing or feel the sun on our face can make such a difference to our physical and mental wellbeing. I personally love being near the water and I am a big animal lover. Many of our clients enjoy this too and have felt their mental health struggle because they cannot be part of nature during lockdown
