We're planting trees around UK hospitals to say thank you to @NHSuk key workers and to support their long term mental and physical health. We spoke to hospital staff about how access to nature is crucial for their wellbeing. A thread /1 #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek 🧠
“After a difficult shift I feel stretched, rushed and head buzzing with a million things to do before I finish.” - Rachel, wellbeing specialist at Cornwall Partnership Trust. /2 #nhsheroes #ClapfortheNHS
“Being outdoors in nature makes me and my family happier. I think this initiative is fantastic and will really support our staff, many of whom do not have nice indoor spaces for breaks.” /3 #nhsheroes #NHS
We asked a senior manager how the pandemic has affected their mental health. “Rollercoaster of highs and lows, feelings of helplessness, uncertainty and other times when you feel positive and motivated.” /4 #NHSheroes #Covid_19
How will our initiative to plant trees around hospitals will make a positive difference to staff's mental and physical wellbeing? “Cannot support it enough – having a space to go outside and be surrounded by trees will be extremely welcomed.” /5 #ClapfortheNHS @NHSMillion
“After a busy day at work I feel drained and sometimes a bit low and alone. My priority is looking after my kids and my mum (86). I worry about her mental health as we can’t be with her and she’s missing so much.” - Clare, quality and assurance lead, Newcastle. /6 #NHSheroes
“Planting trees around hospitals will be hugely uplifting. Now, more than ever, we need the beauty of nature. Patients, families and staff have all been affected these past months. We need to take away painful memories and see beauty in the world around us again.” /8 #NHSheroes
