On the 1st December at the University of Winchester, naturalist, TV presenter, photographer, and author Chris Packham will give his first talk as patron of Winchester Youth Counselling.

Chris is best known for presenting Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch for the BBC, as well as writing an award-winning memoir Fingers in the Sparkle Jar in 2016. Two documentaries, Chris Packham: Aspergers and me and more recently Chris Packham: The walk that made me, shed light on his unique perception of the world, and his own struggles with mental health in his younger years.

Chris reveals the connection between immersion in a natural environment and preserving or improving mental health, and presents a call to action for society to understand the true value of the natural world around us.

This event is being held as a partnership between the University of Winchester and Winchester Youth Counselling, and all proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to WYC.
