This year, Mental Health Awareness Week (May 10th – May 16th) is all about the benefits which spending time in Nature has upon our mental health. SGS LRC has therefore put together a highlighted collection of selected books which can help support your mental health, as well as to inspire you to get out in nature!
For further tips and ideas on how to make the most of nature all around you, the folks over at the Mental Health Awareness website have put together this helpful list of Top Tips!
