Green Therapy: Survey
How has green therapy helped others?
Here at Decorative Aggregates, we surveyed 1,000 people with a diagnosed mental health condition that is uncontrolled (by medication or intervention) and that has a significant impact on their daily life or activities.
We asked them questions to find out whether they used green therapy as a technique to help manage their mental health difficulties, and found the following:
- 45% have tried green therapy and of those people, 57% found it more effective than exercise and sport to manage their mental health difficulties.
- 84% think gardening has mental health benefits but only 45% have tried green therapy to help.
- 31% find green therapy more effective than exercise and sport to manage their mental health difficulties.
Research recommends spending 2 hours per week in nature to help with good health;
Psychology Today states: “For the first time, researchers have established a threshold at which spending time in nature starts to be associated with good self-reported health and high self-reported well-being: 120 minutes per week.”
51% do actually spend 1-2 hours or more outside partaking in green therapy each week.
