There is a growing body of evidence that greencare and ecotherapy interventions have a positive impact on mental health and social inclusion. This conference aims to make explicit different and contrasting mental health models, service structures, and their outcomes in greencare settings. This is the first national conference to address the theoretical and applied ideas that contribute to this effective way of addressing mental health problems and associated social exclusion. Join us for stimulating, lively debate about what works and why, and how to apply the evidence in your own setting.
