Green Social Prescribing Stories

Green Social Prescribing to Tackle Mental Ill-Health, Bristol

Before, I never appreciated green spaces as much as I do now. I live two minutes away from a park, and I’ve been going to the park more now than I have pre-COVID. This physical side and getting out and about and meeting people, sharing your experiences, I think that’s really important. People don’t talk to each other enough, I feel, and that affects their wellbeing. It’s hard to explain. When you come out of a green space you feel very happy that you were there. It’s brilliant.

I’ve been coming about three years. To come here and just be able to relax and chat with people, and plod along, and do something and feel satisfied with what you’ve been doing… I just enjoy it
