Photography Competition! Last day for entries tomorrow! To mark this year's #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek we are running a photography competition. Take and send us a photo of nature & somewhere in nature that makes you feel calm, with a caption of why it is important to you. The winning photo will get a £25 Amazon Voucher. Please submit all entries to Mr. Ellard - firstname.lastname@example.org by tomorrow! The competition focuses on your experience of nature, whether it's striding across Richmond Park, paddling along the Thames, or tending to a houseplant, which has long been shown to have a hugely positive impact on our mental wellbeing. If the past year has taught us anything, it's the life-affirming benefits of the natural world. When it seemed as if the world was standing still, the continuing cycle of nature has offered reassurance and hope. Photographing nature can also have numerous health benefits. Research in 2010 revealed that not only does photography help us focus on positive life experiences, enhance self-worth, and even reduce the stress hormone cortisol. We look forward to seeing your entries. . . . . #RadnorHouseWellbeing #connectwithnature #naturephotography #mentalhealthawareness

I ran out of words last week to finish off a final thought from ‘The Coddling of the American Mind’ by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt, so I will start with them this week. By coincidence, issues relating to free speech at universities are highl...
