Ex-Services Gardening Therapy

Erskine and the ex-Service charity Gardening Leave, have joined forces to help service personnel suffering from stress.

Gardening Leave will run a horticultural therapy project, based in the Old Garden Centre at Erskine. Erskine will be recruiting suitable volunteers to assist a qualified therapist.

This is the first time that the military in the UK, will use horticultural therapy  to provide a relaxed environment, where veterans can deal with their problems in a positive way, promoting a more optimistic future

Combat stress can affect any age group and results in various problems, including; Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression and anxiety.
