10th May, 7pm-8pm Christianity, Nature and Mental health: Possibilities & Pitfalls LCI Online event via zoom meeting

The theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is ‘Nature’, drawing attention to the fact that (as our experiences of lockdown have highlighted) nature is crucial for our mental health. But not everyone has equal access to natural places: poorer communities are more likely to lack them; women can be excluded because of the threats of harassment and violence they face.
