A FREE Programme for Young People (aged 16-25) - strengthen your emotional wellbeing by engaging in Nature and creative activities - Brighton
The benefits of being outside in nature are plentiful – stress alleviation, relaxation and the reduction in symptoms of depression are just a few. It also helps social interaction so you make friends more easily and feel less isolated.
Why don’t you join us for three weekly FREE 2-hour sessions. Slow down and reconnect with yourself and your environment in this nature-based, discovery led programme.
Typical activities include walks, some light conservation work or gardening. This would be combined with a range of creative activities such as painting, weaving, lino cutting, tie-dye or cooking on an open fire. There will be time to talk and share collective struggles if you wish to.

“I just wanted to take the opportunity to say a massive thank you for the recent programme my daughter Mel attended. Mel has been struggling of late, she was un-motivated and was struggling to find happiness in things she previously had passions for. Having started your programmes, I could see almost instantly she was re-engaged with her art, she became a lot more talkative with me, we spoke a lot about how she made the artwork, how the process was and how she was getting on. This was a massive shift in how Mel was on a day-to-day basis, she has always previously been very creative and enjoyed painting and photography, having just finished the four-week programme, she has picked up her camera again and actively asked for painting materials. I simply can’t thank everyone enough, your project has given me glimpses of my daughter again”
.. quote from the parent of a young person who attended our programme.
“The programme has helped me see more of me and less of my disorder. It brought back my identity, as I remembered I have interests that I thought I lost due to my disorder. It helped me refocus on a task, activity or learning process and had a really positive impact on my wellbeing ”
“The concept is amazing, the activities are really enriching and really well thought out. The mixture of learning, creating and then sharing was really stimulating to engage my anxious mind”
