🌳 🌼 🦋 1st Bishopton Brownie leader Emma has noticed her girls meeting outside again has not only had a positive impact on her girls but on her community too… "It's clear to see the positive impact meeting outside again has had on the girls' mental health as there's been lots of laughter and chatter. Even locals have commented on how nice it has been to see the girls out and about again, so out good vibes are having a knock-on effect on the community!"

To celebrate this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week #ConnectWithNature theme, comment below if you’ve started outdoor guiding again and tell us how it’s going!

It's #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek! To celebrate this year's #ConnectWithNature theme we caught up with a group of volunteers to find out how meeting outside again has boosted their girls' mental health as well as their own! They also share their top tips for easing back into outdoor guiding. Search link in bio for more info 🌼 🌳 🦋

🗣️ "Meeting outside again has been great for our girls’ mental health – they get fresh air, get to run around and chat to their friends in person after being locked down for so long. Being outdoors with the girls has also had a really positive impact on my own wellbeing. I always go home with a smile on my face!" – Anna, 4th Edinburgh Guide leader
