This theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is “nature”. So, it makes sense that Business in the Community (BITC) – The Prince of Wales’ Responsible Business Trust – has launched  “The Power of Nature for Employee Wellbeing” toolkit. This is for employers who want to understand how to weave nature and work environment into their wellbeing programmes.

As well as supporting businesses to address the climate emergency, the power of nature can be harnessed to enhance employee wellbeing. The toolkit outlines some of the benefits of doing so and explores possible interventions. It includes examples from Business in the Community (BITC) members Deloitte, Anglian Water, Eurovia UK Ltd and The Eden Project.

The toolkit also includes links to additional useful resources.

You can find out more about the toolkit and download it here.

This is Mental Health Foundation’s video explaining more about the link between nature and mental health:
