The Impact of Immersion in Nature on Mental Health and Stress Relief

The use of green spaces for stress and anxiety relief is a growing field of research. Our report / poster is a literature review looking at how the level of immersion in green spaces impacts health benefits, specifically stress and anxiety levels. We are proposing a project for future students to conduct to see the benefits of different immersion levels and their effects on student stress levels. The findings of this report could be beneficial for students during times of stress, such as midterm and final examinations.
