Sussex countryside dramatically improves mental health

University of Brighton have evaluated our Grow programme to find that being in the countryside has huge benefits to people suffering with mental health issues.

We know from direct feedback that people experience increased confidence and improved self esteem on our programme,  but it's fantastic that the University of Brighton have been able to validate that.

One past Grow participant has said:

“I have absolutely loved the whole experience – it’s changed my life. I have been so anxious – I have struggled to go out for the past couple of years. I have looked out of the window and craved the peace and silence of nature – and just not had the energy, motivation or courage to leave the flat.”
