A cross-sectional analysis of green space prevalence and mental wellbeing in England
AuthorsVictoria Houlden, Scott Weich and Stephen Jarvis
Conclusions: While the green space in an individual’s local area has been shown through other research to be related to aspects of mental health such as happiness and life satisfaction, the association with multidimensional mental wellbeing is much less clear from our results. While we did not find a statistically significant association between the amount of green space in residents’ local areas and mental wellbeing, further research is needed to understand whether other features of green space, such as accessibility, aesthetics or use, are important for mental wellbeing.
