Wellbeing, mental health and the natural world – by Claire Thompson (Wellbeing coordinator)
Join Claire Thompson, Fitz’s new Wellbeing coordinator, to hear about her personal journey into ‘mindfulness’, nature, wellbeing and mental health.
Claire has joined the Fitzwilliam College community from the NHS, where she worked as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, alongside her work as a nature-based mindfulness workshop facilitator. Claire is the author of Mindfulness and the Natural World, and The Art of Mindful Birdwatching. Her talk will explore what it means to develop a mindful relationship with ourselves and the rest of the natural world and why it’s vital for our wellbeing and that of our planet that we do so. Claire will present some of the current evidence supporting the benefits of mindful nature connection for wellbeing and mental health and share practical tips on how to connect with the natural world in our daily lives. She will also share her vision and plans for supporting student and staff wellbeing at Fitz.
Capacity limited to 70 people, on a first-come, first-served basis.
