Project description:

At Venture Trust, we see the outdoors as therapeutic environments for improving mental health and wellbeing. With the guidance of a Community Outreach Support worker, participants in Aberdeen will be supported to set goals for improving their mental health and wellbeing and given the opportunity to participate on one of our unique Wilderness Journeys, which can see them travelling for anything up to ten days through the Scottish Highlands. For those who are unable to participate on a Wilderness Journey, we will make use of local community green spaces to create goals and develop the tools for improving mental health and wellbeing.
