The MARCH Network[1], a UKRI funded national mental health research network, set out in 2018 to transform our understanding of how social, cultural and community assets enhance mental health and wellbeing, help prevent mental illness, and support those living with mental health conditions. A key objective was to support collaborative research that addressed the challenges facing mental health provision and practices in the UK. The ‘Sustainability Indicators When Utilising Nature for Mental Health’ resource is an outcome of one of the MARCH network funded research projects. This project represented a unique attempt to collate and explore sustainability-related concerns with service users and stakeholders in this rapidly growing sector. The work was particularly concerned with how these types of approaches can best achieve ethical and effective delivery for long term benefit. A key outcome of the project, The Six P Sustainability Framework, is intended for organisations utilising Nature for Mental Health. It provides a structure from which a practical set of sustainability indicators have been derived and collated into a self-assessment tool. The range of associated indicators offered in the tool can be used to review and self-assess sustainability across key domains related to the delivery of outdoor mental health interventions.
