Season 2: Episode 10:

Marina talks about the link between the Climate Crisis and Mental health.

Balancing what can seem quite hopeless, with some information about how our health systems in the UK are responding, as well as looking at how our medical models are beginning to include social and green prescriptions as an additional or alternative route to wellness. 

Topics include

• How the Climate Crisis could implicate self-harming

• The biopsychosocial approach

• Introducing Green care models and Green Prescriptions

• Celebrating a Natural England Grant to provide funding to train NHS staff in our Certificate in Nature-based Practice

The Wild Minds Podcast is brought to you by me, Marina Robb, an author, entrepreneur, Forest School and Nature-Based Trainer and Consultant, and pioneer in developing Green Programmes for the Health Service in the UK.
