Spending time in nature can enhance ones sense of well-being. The program, Natural Minds - Lasting Connections, was a 2016 pilot program working with communities of Torontonians living with mental illness to grow relationships with nature by offering excursions in outdoor park environments - specifically in Tommy Thompson Park. Individuals interested in initiating their own guided walks took part in a Nature Ambassador Training Program, gaining skills and knowledge to positively impact fellow community members in the future. The program offered a means for people to strengthen connections - with other people and with our natural environment. Strategies are being explored to grow the program.
