“Spending time in the outdoors and in contact with the natural environment – for example by walking in parks, woodland and green spaces – can have a positive effect on mental health.” -SANE
Combine that with, “Walking in a group is a sociable activity that can help improve mental health and overcome feelings of isolation.” ~ MIND
The group is a guided walking group and will be run by one of our support workers, offering you vital information and support for your depression while encourage the effects that the above quotes state. This is an accessible way for you to access our support, especially for those that struggle to make our Saturday morning drop in.
We will meet Thursdays at 10:30 during the Summer months.
We alternate between various London parks.
For example: Golders Hill, Parliament Hill, Regents Park, to name a few.
To make sure you stay up to date with the information about our walks why not join our Small Steps What’s App group? We update the group regularly with time and meeting location. If you would like to join contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
