The Women in Adventure Mental Wellbeing Survey was launched to investigate the association between the outdoors and mental wellbeing in women.
As a community, instinctively we know that being outside is good for the soul – it makes us feel alive. However, at the time the survey launched, we felt that there was a lack of accessible information investigating how and to what extent the outdoors impacts the lives of women who participate in adventure sports. We want to change this.
Our Mental Wellbeing Survey was launched in October 2017 at Shextreme Film Festival and supported by a number of industry partners. The survey ran until January 2018. In this time it received over 2,700 responses and hundreds of personal stories.
