Invitation to join steering group on Nature Matters
My name is Shuo and I'm a psychiatry trainnee in London. I've been working with the Planetary Health and Sustainability Commettee of the Royal College of Psychiatrists on resources online to help psychiatrists have a greater impact in their trusts and beyond.
We are looking for people with an interest in nature/greenspace/bluespaces and mental health to get in touch. Initially this will be focused on developing our Nature Matter's page - https://www.rcpsych.ac.uk/improving-care/working-sustainably/nature-matters . However we are also keen to do more work on the links between natural environments, ecology and mental health i.e. developing training on delivering nature based therapies or ways to further the evidence base around nature based therpaeutic interventions.
Do get in touch on here or via email (Shuo.Zhang@kcl.ac.uk) if you would like to be involved. Dr Alan Kellas who is the Green Care Lead and I will set up an initial meeting to explain more and determine people's interests and capacities and go from there.
