A POSITIVE GARDEN ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH

Mind Trap has been created by Ian Price and sponsored and built by idverde at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017 to highlight the issue of mental ill health in our society, for the benefit of all. Mind Trap is based on Ian’s personal experience of suffering from mental ill health and depression; he uses a physical living garden filled with symbolism to show sufferers that they are not alone, and give those with no experience of suffering some insight into what it feels like.
