Mental Health Benefits of Nature.
Our main goals are based around improving the mental health of children and teenagers. We do this working side by side with nature and outdoor learning allowing our children to feel nurtured throughout their journey with us.
There are a huge amount of studies exploring the benefits of working with nature and mental health. A review of 35 academic papers from 1990 until 2017, explored impact of outdoor learning and how this affects mental health in children up to the age of 18. Overall, the findings concluded nature has positive influences on mental health, especially of those with emotional wellbeing and attention deficit disorders/hyperactivity disorders. There were also successful positive relationships measures around self-esteems, stress, resilience and depression.

We have all had different experiences during the lockdown of 2020, however at Flourish we are trying to make this summer one to remember with our summer camps.
Throughout the summer we will be offering outdoor learning and excitement for all children to come and join in. If you would like your child to attend, drop us an email - we have limited places available!
