Nature and Mental Health – A Case Study

The Stuart Low Trust is launching a new series of inspiring videos about our work as a mental health charity during Mental Health Awareness Week 2023.  In this first in the series, Darren talks about how he benefits from our Nature outings and Jocelyn, our Nature Group Leader, explains how Nature brings out something beautiful in participants. 

Stuart Low was a young Islington man with a diagnosis of schizophrenia, who sadly took his own life.  He couldn’t find the right support at the right time when he needed it most.  Stuart’s death mobilised Londoners to create The Stuart Low Trust (SLT) in 1999.  Their aim was to create social therapeutic activities for isolated Londoners at risk.   Islington is one of the most deprived boroughs in England with high some of the highest levels of severe mental health problems in the country. 


DONATE now to double your impact!  The Stuart Low Trust’s Big Give campaign during Mental Health Awareness Week 15-22 May will raise funds to connect 150 isolated Londoners through free nature outings.  Every £ raised will be doubled by the Big Give.

Please donate now

For example £20 will pay for a Time to Talk session enabling isolated Londoners to connect with others at a nature outing.  

Every penny will be spent directly on these nature outings. 

We are incredibly grateful to Kudos for producing this brilliant video for The Stuart Low Trust so generously to support our campaign.  A huge thank you to Martin Haines MD, Jess and Maddie at Kudos.
