Myplace is one of my favourite LWT projects. Run in partnership with the Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, it helps people reconnect with nature in a gentle, participant-led way that has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety. It’s such a fantastic form of therapy – ecotherapy, in fact – for people who may be struggling to connect with the world around them or overcome severe mental health issues.
It’s lovely, then, to hear from former Myplace participants about their unforgettable experiences. We recently received a case study from Rosie Harvey, who volunteered with Myplace Volunteer Coordinator, Jenny Reddell, before moving into a new job! Congratulations Rosie!
Here is what she had to say about her time with the Myplace project.
