We’re a couple of guys from Taunton and Minehead who have both had our fair share in dealing with our own mental health. Our view is that mental health and wellbeing is not a ‘problem’ to be fixed. Instead, it’s our internal compass saying ‘dude, something isn’t right’.
“The truest help we can render an afflicted man is not to take his burden from him, but to call out his best energy, that he may be able to bear the burden”
Phillips Brooks (1835-1893)
Our mission is to help people with their wellbeing in the way that we have been helped. We provide opportunities based in the natural world for people to help re-find a sense of purpose and enjoyment in their lives.
