In recent years, the importance of mental health has become more widely recognized, but the stigma still surrounding mental illness can still make it difficult for people to seek help. At Mental Houseplants, we believe that taking care of your mental health is important to live a happy and continuously growing lifestyle. We also believe plants can be an effective way to improve mental health and wellbeing through fostering a connection with nature and engaging in a mindful practice. By this, we hope to help people find comfort, balance, and growth in their lives.
We are advocates for mental health because we have both experienced our own personal journeys with mental health and over-coming barriers associated with having a mental health disorder. As stated previously, we have witnessed firsthand the positive impact that plants can have on wellbeing. Kayla's love for indoor plants began with just two and has now grown into a thriving collection of over 60 plants in our single-bedroom apartment. Nolan, inspired by Kayla's experience and eager to learn more, delved into research and discovered the compelling connection between indoor plants and improved mental health.
