What is Ecotherapy?


Ecotherapy is a nature based therapeutic intervention for young people aged 11-18 yrs (25 yrs living with SEND) aimed at improving mental & emotional wellbeing. Studies have shown the mental health benefits of Ecotherapy to be mood enhancing & stress reducing. It also can increase self-confidence, emotional regulation, wellbeing & emotional resilience.


Aim of the Project:


The main aims of the project are to support young people living with emotional & mental wellbeing issues to engage more fully in their education & lives and to build relationships between young people on the project to help reduce social isolation.


Come along and see the marine life!
