A Garden For Life
We are pleased to tell you about a new therapeutic program in process at Rogers Memorial Hospital: horticultural therapy. We know that physical environment and experiential therapies, including horticultural therapy, can have a major positive impact on treatment for many psychiatric illnesses and conditions.
For that reason, we are asking you to join the Foundation in giving those who suffer an opportunity to connect with nature in a way that will complement the other therapies offered at Rogers and inspire the recovery process.
Your gift will help:
- Landscape outside therapeutic garden space
- Procure materials to dig, plant and grow the garden
- Further develop the horticultural therapy program
- Train staff
Some of our patients have already experienced the benefits of nature on a very small scale in the current gardens at Rogers. Read how the gardens helped Naomi overcome her depression and anxiety.
