WELL-BEING: New garden to help improve care environment in Radlett

 Published on: 18th July 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

A new well-being and sensory garden opened in Radlett as part of measures to enhance the caring environment at a young people’s mental health facility.

In the garden, many settings have been developed for CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) community service users, their families, and workers at Forest House, which is managed by the Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust.

The location was developed with major involvement from the young people’s council, which represents service users accessing CAMHS, to provide varied settings for varying purposes – pleasure, meditation, or gathering places.

The focus is on creating therapeutic areas for creative hobbies, gardening, or just relaxing.

Sandra Brookes, trust executive director of service delivery and experience, who has championed this project, officially opened the garden on July 7, a first of its type for the Trust.

She said: “The garden is an area of exceptional beauty, diversity and quiet and is an enormous addition to what we are able to offer at Forest Lane.”
