The Well-Gardened Mind

Monday, 4 March 2024

10:45 am

A one-day symposium that aims to raise awareness of how gardens, and a return to nature, can play a major role in the treatment of mental health and other health issues.

Keynote Speaker, Dr Sue Stuart-Smith from the UK, is a prominent psychiatrist, psychotherapist, and author of the book, The Well-Gardened Mind. Her book describes her research into how gardens, involvement in horticulture, and a return to nature, can improve a participant’s physical, emotional and social wellbeing.

Sue will be joined by Australian presenters, Steven Wells (Austin Health) and Tanya Bearup (My Garden Space); both specialists in evidence-based, ethical, and person-centred horticultural therapy. A panel discussion with all 3 speakers will finish the day.

Delegates will be able to gain practical knowledge on how they can apply this drug-free practice to patients under their support and care.
