SAGE Greenfingers

Charity description

SAGE Greenfingers logo
SAGE Greenfingers supports adults with mental health needs via social therapeutic horticulture and arts activity in a beautiful allotment space inner-city Sheffield. Our beneficiaries may experience anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, psychoses, schizophrenia or other disorders, often combined with chronic physical health problems and acute social isolation. Typically they find more conventional mental health services such as face-to-face counselling or group therapy too challenging. But working in a natural, outside environment on tasks that combine the mental with the physical, social and even spiritual can work wonders. People generally attend groups once a week and for many it has been an absolute life-saver and the 1st step on the road to recovery.

Mental health problems affect one in 4 of us and many slip through the net of mainstream health services. We catch such people and support via robust therapy with a light touch in a stunning outdoor space. Men and women of all ages and many ethnicities speak movingly on how our support has put them on a road to recovery when they were on the brink of despair.
