Thrive Social Therapeutic Horticulture Training For Mental Health

This two-day course aimed at practitioners will demonstrate how social and therapeutic horticulture (STH) can help people who have mental health support needs. With mental health services across the UK under increased pressure from shrinking budgets, STH programmes can offer a proven, cost-effective alternative to purely medical interventions.

The course provides information, skills, techniques and confidence in using STH to address rehabilitation, recovery, social inclusion, training and employment. What you will learn:

  • How to apply the principles and practice of STH to benefit people who have mental health support needs
  • Insights into the role of a horticultural therapist working with people who have mental health support needs
  • How to begin to design a client centered STH programme .
  • The importance of assessment, monitoring, evaluation, horticultural programming and planning for garden projects and for the individuals attending a garden project.
