I was so lucky to be invited to the Carers Plus Yorkshire Wellbeing Day at Scampston Hall, near Malton, Yorkshire.
Whilst I was there I had the pleasure of finally meeting Antony Hurd of Hey Smile Foundation and we were able to talk about the benefits of Mindful Photography.
We discussed how anyone can access this style of photography; any age, any skill, any place, in any weather and with any camera. The art is in the looking and the slowing down.
You can read Antony’s experience of the day in his fourteenth newsletter ⬆️ – also use the link to sign up to the Hey Smile Foundation newsletter to receive updates.
Who are the Hey Smile Foundation?
The Humber and North Yorkshire Green Social Prescribing programme is one of seven ‘test and learn’ sites in England that will examine how health and care services, working with communities and local organisations, can connect more people with nature and nature-based activities to improve their mental health and wellbeing. The programme is funded by: DEFRA; NHS England; NHS Improvement; the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities; the National Academy for Social Prescribing; Natural England; Sport England; The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities; and the Department of Health and Social Care. The programme is being run by the Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership through our Lead Provider, HEY Smile Foundation. (Taken from Newsletter)
