Sustainability

MENTAL HEALTH, CLIMATE, ARTs & CULTURE, WORK & LIFE ECONOMIES, ALTERNATIVE STRUCTURES

A list of ‘well-being’ can do’s from the G.P is topped by ‘eat a banana’ and ‘go for a walk /spend time in a green space’. But what if there is no green space, what if it’s been chopped down and developed on for business, roads or something else? If we want good well being and  mental health- surely we need to strap ourselves to a tree?

Everything about the way we live and do is connected, there’s always a knock on-domino affect. So if conditions are to improve we need to stop thinking inside boxes and start thinking outside of them.

HEALTH as A SPECTRUM

We all have physical health, some people are healthier than others. In the same way we all have mental health, some people are healthier than others. We are all different and this is very individual in both cases.
