Belisama’s Retreat is a Woodland and riverside retreat for military Veteran’s mental health on the banks of the river Ribble near Preston. Many Veterans struggle adjusting to civilian life. At Belisama’s we work to improve their physical and mental well-being through re-engagement with wild spaces.
What we do:Ecotherapy is clinically proven to assist mental health recovery and at Belisama’s we employ it to offer respite, space to breathe, re-engagement with wild spaces and an opportunity for Veterans to re-gain their emotional resilience and self-esteem. Belisama’s Retreat employs a clearly defined mechanism to produce positive outcomes: Pioneering activities based around a woodland “Harbour area” where both Veterans and the general public can learn or rediscover the core skills of campcraft, woodcraft and wilderness living; positive involvement of Veterans and other user groups in improving the environment through land management and conservation; the company of like-minded individuals. Sharing of experiences and self-exploration.
Activities:Eco-therapy focused activities including: Bushcraft, Canoeing, Archery, Wildlife watching, Photography. Expeditions to remote areas of the UK and overseas. Volunteer days. Youth group (Scouts, DofE, Cadets) visits and woodland experience days.
