You will learn how to assist an adult who may be experiencing a mental health problem or mental health crisis until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves, using a practical, evidence-based action plan.

Forrest Therapy 

The practise of spending time in nature for therapeutic benefit is now known as Forest Therapy.

A Forest Therapy walk is not an energetic, exercise walk. It is a very slow, relaxing meander through nature that is suitable for all persons of all mobility levels. It is done mostly quietly and with no technology to distract us. It is very much a matter of the journey being the focus, not the destination.

The walk will consist of a number of activities that your FTG will offer to you to participate in. These activities are designed to assist you with slowing down and reconnecting with nature through your senses and creativity and are not mandatory or prescriptive.

Your FTG will provide you with an explanation of the history, meaning and benefits of Forest Therapy as a public health practice, but this walk is not designed as an educational or therapy session. Nature is your therapist, with the FTG as your facilitator.
