Plants helping people at Rogers Behavioral Health

Horticultural therapy allows patients to use nature to decrease anxiety, improve relationships with food and make peace with imperfections. A deep connection to the environment and plant life is ingrained in Rogers’ century-old therapeutic legacy and an active part of current treatment.

Our facilities and outdoor spaces on the Oconomowoc campus are intentionally designed to be peaceful places for patients to rest, reconnect and make more meaningful discoveries in treatment. Therapeutic spaces include gazebos, bird and butterfly gardens, outdoor gardening spaces, and scenic walking trails.

With a sophisticated self-regulated climate control system, our state-of-the-art greenhouse in Oconomowoc makes it possible to stay connected with the environment and grow plants year-round.
