Here at Walton, we are encouraging students to participate in Mental Health Awareness Week which takes place between 10-16 May 2021.

In addition to their personal development lessons and activities within the academy, this year we are encouraging students to explore their connection with the great outdoors and nature, and the many health benefits this can bring.

We have provided the following guide for students:

Both the WWF and the Mental Health Foundation have also produced these fantastic guides on thriving with nature to support better mental health:

Let’s all get into the great outdoors and connect with nature to support our mental health!
