Did you know that 1 in 4 of us are affected by a mental health problem at some point in our lives? Have a look around you and think about all the people you know. The chances are a few of them will have a mental health problem if you don’t have one yourself.
In Malta, 96.2% of the population is living in an urban area. Just by doing so there is 40% higher risk of suffering with depression and a 20% higher risk of an anxiety disorder. However, recent research has shown just 2 hours a week in nature can help lower your stress levels and improve your happiness.
On Saturday, 21 September the Blooming Minds team will be attending The Bubble Festival to demonstrate an ecotherapy session to the public. There will be an introduction on nature and mental wellbeing followed by some ecotherapy activities. Come and join us to learn more about the project and how you can improve you mental wellbeing!
