Improving mental health

Out in the open

Mountains for the Mind is a new campaign from Trail magazine promoting the benefits of being outside. We believe in the power of the mountains to change lives and improve mental health – and we need your help to spread the word.


One in four people in Britain experience mental health problems each year, but spending time outdoors can reduce the risk of depression by 30%.
