Research by YouGov, released by the UK's Mental Health Foundation, states that even small moments in nature can be effective in protecting people's mental health and preventing distress. For 65% of those surveyed, being near water had the greatest positive impact. Which is why the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust will be running a nature-based health program — Blue Prescribing — at its London center starting this summer.
The six-week wetlands course was developed in partnership with the Mental Health Foundation, and will include hands-on activities in 'watery' natural settings. The project's aim is to enable people to make nature a continuing element in caring for their own mental health. Making the program accessible to all, Blue Prescribing is fully funded by Simplyhealth, a UK health solutions company.
