Depressed? Ditch the concrete and go green

Written by Diane Archer

New research reveals that people who live in communities with green space have lower levels of depression and anxiety than people who live in urban areas with little or no green space.  They may also experience less stress.

Green space can mean anything from forests to small parks, both of which can be health-promoting.  Green space has also been shown to lower crime rates and reduce violence.

Green space can also lead to greater exercise and other physical activities that contribute to better health.
