About This Survey

This survey is targeted at people whose professional role includes a significant amount of frontline work with people with mental health problems. There are other surveys available for those whose focus lies in policy and commissioning work, working with people with physical health issues, and in directly delivering or managing the delivery of nature based health activities/ nature therapy. 

It focuses on their perspectives on their engagement with nature based health activities/ nature therapy, on the impact of such work, on whether expanding access to such work should be a priority, on the barriers to such expansion and how such barriers might be overcome. 

Terminology Used.

The terms used in this developing field are not yet standardised.

You may come across in the literature, or use yourself, terms such as 'green health' or 'blue health'.

For the purposes of this survey we use:

'Engagement with nature' to denote any engagement with nature, whether individually or as part of an organised programme.

'Nature based health activities' to denote any organised activities involving people engaging with nature with the purpose of improving their health and wellbeing.

'Nature therapy' as a subset of those activities, reflecting the wide current use of the term, and denoting activity intended to have a therapeutic effect on those engaging in it.
