DCMH assesses and treats around 860 new tri-service patients each year, equating to approximately 3,400 appointments per annum.
The garden will act as a therapeutic vehicle improving the mental health and wellbeing of those attending treatment. Access to the garden will help support the morale and wellbeing of Serving personnel and, indirectly their families.
