"Stress reduction for veterans and their families through mindfulness and holistic wellness therapies"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Between December 2017 & January 2019, 89 military personnel and/or veterans took their own lives. Shocking isn't it!!

Delve a little deeper and you will find many more have attempted suicide but have survived and many, many more who have suicidal thoughts due to mental health difficulties. These difficulties often go un-diagnosed due to the fear of stigma, feelings of failure or embarrassment. It takes an average of 4 years for a veteran to come forward for help with their mental health. This MUST change.

Wintergreen UK is a nonprofit organisation providing FREE holistic health and wellness.

We prioritise our veterans, their families, civilian emergency service personnel and those working in other stressful occupations.

Members of the public may also access our services by appointment and for a donation.

Our services include mindfulness stress reduction and wellness coaching which can enhance and support other mental health therapies or can be used on it’s own for a deeply relaxing experience. Additional services currently include Reiki and aromatherapy.
