A different approach towards mental health

We advocate mindfulness, community, health and well-being and have seen the benefits to our patients of being in nature through our social prescribing activities like our walking group. Not only does walking through natural beauty spots increase steps and activity, but being out in open green spaces is good for clearing the mind, reducing stress and increasing happiness.
