“We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors, we can borrow it from our children” – Native American proverb

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and here at InterBay Asset Finance we are supporting this year’s theme of NATURE.

Nature is central to our psychological and emotional health. During the long months of the pandemic, millions of us all over the world turned to nature for relief; research by the Mental Health Foundation shows that 45% of those asked reported access to green space as a vital coping mechanism and website webcams saw hits increase by a massive 2000%.

The aim of Mental Health Awareness Week is to inspire people to connect with nature in new ways. Nature is our great untapped resource for a mentally healthy future, bringing consolation in times of stress and increasing our creativity, empathy and sense of wonder.

This week, we are challenging our team to connect with nature and to capture the beauty in their surroundings.
