Anyone who has been fishing will know how beneficial angling is at boosting mental health and wellbeing. On the website, you can find advice and links on how to start fishing and find mental health support near to you – https://anglingtrust.net/getfishing/getfishingforwellbeing/
As part of angling’s offer to mental health and wellbeing organisations, we will be showcasing how angling groups have partnered with us via our new ‘Get Fishing for Wellbeing – Approved Partner’ standard, and the toolkit of resources we can provide to organisations working in this space. We hope that championing these organisations to local and national Health Service Professionals and Community Link Workers will provide consistent opportunities for angling to be prescribed as an activity that perfectly fits with many of the requirements that benefit people with mental health and wellbeing needs.
