Awareness Week

News & Insights

This week is 2021's Mental Health Awareness Week, with connecting to nature as the theme.

"Nature is so central to our psychological and emotional health, that it’s almost impossible to realise good mental health for all without a greater connection to the natural world. For most of human history, we lived as part of nature. It is only in the last five generations that so many of us have lived and worked in a context that is largely separated from nature. And it is only since a 1960s study in the US found that patients who were treated in hospitals with a view of nature recovered faster, that science has started to unpack the extraordinary health benefits." - Mental Health Foundation

Here at Jamma, we clearly see the link between the wellbeing of people and the wellbeing of our planet. We have supported and worked in many partnerships with mental wellbeing organisations to ensure people have the rights to secure their own mental and physical wellbeing.
