Green Minds is very popular with our members and a service we are very proud to offer. Green Minds is a community ecotherapy programme based at Brecon and District Mind. Ecotherapy helps improve the health and wellbeing of those needing support through nature-based initiatives and combats the social isolation within our community by harnessing the healing effects of nature.
What is Green Minds?
We offer a range of nature-based activities from regular drop-in gardening sessions at our weekly community garden group, more informal walk and talk sessions at beautiful locations in and around Brecon, to six-week nature connection group programmes including environmental art, mindfulness and movement in nature.
Green Minds is for anyone looking to improve their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing or those wishing to reconnect with nature. You can refer yourself directly to Green Minds and we also take referrals through GPs, mental health practitioners, support workers or social prescribers.
How to get Involved
Our Green Minds service is managed by our Eco-Therapy coordinator, Seren Berry. Green Minds runs seasonal programs throughout the year. You can find more information or refer yourself to green minds using the buttons below.
Since the initial investment from PAVO, the project has been extended thanks to funds from the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority Sustainable Development Fund, Brecon Town Council, Co-op Community Fund, Moondance Foundation and Postcode Community Lottery. We are so grateful for the funding we have received, which has allowed the project to continue and grow, and for the support from Brecon Cathedral where we have established a beautiful community garden.
