Thursday 14 July from 1pm

Following on from the previous sessions considering mental health, wellbeing and rural life we will be hearing from Dr Jenny Mercer and Dr Debbie Clayton from Cardiff Met University. Jenny and Debbie have a wealth of experience on the rural environment and its effects on health. They are currently part of a team evaluating an EcoTherapy project for Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust.

They will be joined by Lyndsay, a research student who has just completed her doctorate looking at bees as an intervention for those in recovery.

It is hoped that this session will prompt us to think about the resources we have available, whether it be a small hanging basket, a church garden, a graveyard, or an allotment, that could be used to promote Wellbeing in our communities.
