Feel better outside

Ecotherapy is a different approach that improves mental and physical wellbeing by supporting people to be active outdoors doing gardening, farming, food growing, exercise, art and craft, or environmental conservation work.

With mental health problems increasing significantly ecotherapy can improve

Between 2009 and 2013, Ecominds has funded 130 ecotherapy projects in the UK.  Feedback from participants has shown that people enjoy being outdoors and that ecotherapy has helped build wellbeing and resilience to developing mental health problem.
