Mental ill health is so common that at any one time around one in six people of working age in the UK have a mental health problem, most often anxiety or depression. The One in Six Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show brings mental health into a very public domain to raise awareness, reduce stigma and encourage the public to consider their own mental health and tips for wellbeing.
The on-going design, garden-building and growing of plants will be undertaken by individuals experiencing mental health problems through a series of weekly workshops that will also offer accredited learning. Through this approach Squeaky Gate again demonstrates that mental health problems are no obstacle to achievement at the highest levels.
