🌿 NHS prescribe plants to treat depression 🌿

Did you know research shows that having plants in your home can create a healthy and positive living environment... improving your overall well-being?

Read more about the GP surgery in Manchester that has launched a radical new scheme to treat depression. Following overwhelming evidence, doctors are now prescribing plant care! 💚

My question is: Will they be available on prescription? 🤔
If you are struggling financially (a huge contributing factor for depression) then using what tiny funds you have to care for yourself and family on plants would feel outrageous.

All the best, Leia

I’m not surpised about the effects. It is more normal for humans to live close to nature than not. I think a lot of the last few decades of progress in technology and how we live will have to be wound back a bit to be human-friendly again. 🙂

I always thought that plants tend to brighten up a room, and it turns out they brighten your mood too!
