Creating opportunities for mental health patientsI want to collaborate
The initiative seeks to enhance the empowerment of patients through a therapeutic intervention carried out outdoors. The aim is to improve personal self-care, integrate the learning of basic skills and improve their physical and cognitive functioning. At the same time, we want them to incorporate healthy lifestyle habits that will enhance their mood and make their hospital stay more comfortable. The garden will also serve to involve patients and professionals thanks to interactive formulas for shared participation to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.
