OT and spiritual-care staff supported a weekly group at accessible nature spaces over 12 weeks for forensic mental-health clients (n = 9) in Ontario, Canada. Outcomes were measured qualitatively consistent with interpretative phenomenological analysis. Themes highlighted freedom, connection to nature, unguarded reflection and relaxation, and strengthened human connections. Analysis of eco inputs in supporting mental-illness recovery has been limited; this study supports that conversation.
