This tree was giving me life yesterday. The pretty blossoms and the fragrance… I could have stared at it for hours.
It sounds cheesy, the whole idea of “communing with nature” but it’s been one of the lessons of the last two years: getting outside, green space and the great outdoors are vital to our mental health. We need it.
So this #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek, let’s celebrate & protect nature. How do we do that? Create 5 new provincial parks. Plant 800K trees. Cancel the environment-destroying, smog-spewing Hwy 413.
On the surface those might not sound like mental health policies, but they’re going to contribute to our collective mental wellbeing: access to nature & protection for it, and not adding to climate anxiety. All policies to move us in the right direction.
The choice is yours. Vote for the Ontario Liberal Party this election.
