Lindengate

Charity description

Lindengate logo
Lindengate is a mental health charity that offers specialized gardening activities to help those with mental health needs in their continuing recovery. Our services, known as Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH), use the healing power of nature and the outdoors to improve mental wellbeing, boost self-esteem and social inclusion and encourage long-term recovery. 
STH is recognised to be beneficial for a wide range of mental health needs including anxiety, depression, loneliness as well as for people with autism (ASD), dementia and head injury.

1 in 4 people will suffer with some form of mental ill health in any year and there is a desperate need for services to address this need within communities and amongst the workforce. Mental ill-health can be characterised by prejudice and discrimination that stigmatises people with a mental illness, pushing them into social isolation from which it is hard to emerge.
Lindengate’s services are geared towards lifting people from this downward spiral by enabling them to engage within a community of Gardeners that promotes social inclusion and improves self-esteem. The many and varied outdoor activities associated with gardening stimulates wellbeing and encourages the development of new skills and interests.
Mental illness is recognised to have huge societal costs, both human and economic.  In the UK, 300,000 people with a long term mental health problem lose their jobs each year and the costs to the UK economy are estimated to reach towards £100 billion per annum). Improving wellbeing is known to be an essential factor in responding to this need.  This is Lindengate's mission.

Please help us succeed by donating to our cause.
