SAGE stands for Support Arts Gardening Education. We promote the mental and physical well-being of adults experiencing mental health problems via the provision of creative therapeutic activities. Our largest project is SAGE Greenfingers, a horticultural therapy project based on Grimesthorpe allotments in Burngreave in inner-city Sheffield. We also run other therapeutic projects such as singing workshops, art and craft sessions and food growing courses.
Who do we support?
We can offer support to men or women over 18 whose life is troubled by mental health issues. These might range from mild to severe and enduring and include diagnoses such as anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, panic attacks, phobias, schizophrenia, psychosis and post traumatic stress disorder. We can also accommodate adults who have a dual diagnosis of learning disability &/or physical disability. Most of our projects welcome both men and women but we also offer women only activities.
