The last decade has seen a huge shift in how we talk and think about mental health. This mindset shift has given rise to preventative and proactive mental health support. By thinking about mental health holistically, we can identify issues before they become serious problems. Early intervention support is vital when dealing with vulnerable people.
At the Wilderness Foundation we have a long history of early intervention work, supporting vulnerable groups and individual clients with the healing power of nature and the outdoors. Our new programme ‘Brave Futures’ accommodates three age groups – Adults, Adolescence and Children due the issues of mental health affecting people of all ages. Through funding from the National Lottery Community Fund we are pleased to be able to offer up to 24 FREE places on a first come, first serve basis.
With our team of expert therapists, we have a style of working that offers activity and fun, whilst mixing in critically important support in therapy, tools and strategies for managing relationships, boundaries, self-care, communication and emotional control. Activities that work alongside the nature-based therapy include games, bushcraft, camp cooking, walking, foraging, nature art and craft work.
