Mental Wellbeing

"One in four adults and one in 10 children experience mental illness, and many more of us know and care for people who do."


Taking care of ourselves is important, regular exercise, eating healthy and socialising are important. When adversity hits, though, and we face challenging times or situations, our own wellbeing can suffer. Using permaculture design can help you to find the right methods and techniques for creating a social toolkit. This toolkit can support you in times of adversity, helping to build emotional and physical resilience. 


The Five Ways To Wellbeing are part of our own wellbeing toolkit and underpinning at Wyld Edges. They help us to check in with ourselves, ensuring we are taking the time to meet our wellbeing needs and promote good mental and physical health.

We are currently in discussion with MIND and the Permaculture Association UK, on how we can work together to promote using permaculture for mental wellbeing. Part of this collaboration includes having being trained as MIND peer supporters.
