Nature & Health Practitioners Network
A practice network for Green Care, Nature Health and Wellbeing, Eco Therapy and other nature based approaches.
At Nature & Health Practitioners (NHP) we know there are multiple, evidenced, holistic benefits for people's health when individuals and groups are facilitated, professionally, in natural settings.
NHP is about connecting people to nature for their health and wellbeing and through this connectedness encourage pro-environmental behaviour and therefore greater care & support for the natural world. This
We have formed a practice network for Green Care, Nature Health and Wellbeing, Eco Therapy and other nature based approaches. This network can be a voice, advocate and professional body for the developing sector
This network will:
Establish some of the key standards and quality assurance needed for partners, funders, commissioners, participants and practitioners to feel that they are offering a safe, effective and professional service.
Be a place that supports and encourages practitioners to deliver this best possible service to their communities.
Serve as a community for sharing, support, collaborations and discussion.
We are acting collectively to meet the crisis in physical and mental health and in nature. We will help improve the health and wellbeing of people through nature based interventions and activities and help conserve and support the regeneration of the natural world around us all be that urban, rural or wilder.
