For centuries, it has been known that nature has a positive impact on human health and well-being. Environmental goal number nine, Outdoor life for good public health, is one of the environmental goals that the Swedish government has decided on until 2020. The goal is to make the natural and cultural landscape more accessible to citizens and increase good public health. Mental illness is relatively common today at all ages, every individual can be affected. Feeling safe and having adapted accessibility in nature is a major significant factor in how the stay is experienced and how it affects the body's mental state. The right to public access we have in Sweden gives us the opportunity to, with respect, stay out in nature. The study's purpose is to develop the possibility of nature experiences in protected areas of Skåne County. Physical activity on prescription (FaR) uses nature walks in nature reserves as a method. The method of the study to get the result was using a checklist out in the feld. The study results show that there is significant development potential for FaR in protected areas of Skåne County.
