My friend had a mental health "issue " some three years ago and says it was the only thing that kept him alive and helped him to combat the NHS drugs he was given . He took himself off them and is 98% better by "using" the allotment as a stability device in crude terms
I work with educational adults all day on a Wednesday as below and it gradually helps us to "draw them out " of themselves over a period of months
When one of the young adults recently started a conversation it was excitedly but quietly passed all around the group in minutes
Such pleasure to us and of course starts / assists them back into society.
No mobile phones .or interweb or TV any where to be seen Just soil green plants and smelly manure !!
