里德先生說，許多退伍軍人的 "問題 "是他們通過 "一天24小時 "呆在家裡而孤立自己。
他補充說，該項目為他們提供了 "與其他退伍軍人一起在空氣中交談 "的機會。
擁有30年經驗的職業治療師喬安妮-勞森（Joanne Lawson）負責分配會議，她說他們的重點是如何讓退伍軍人的 "每一天 "變得更輕鬆。
Veterans have praised an NHS project allowing them to work in an allotment to help rebuild their mental health.
As part of the project, an overgrown plot in Brislington has been transformed into a site flourishing with salad, vegetables and wildlife.
Mr Glover takes a 65-mile round trip to attend the group that meets one lunchtime per week at Talbot Road Allotments to talk and support each other.
He said since then he had spent time "walking away from trauma, running away from trauma and/or isolating myself".
"When you can't do that any more, it ends up that you've got no choice but to sit at home, practise the thousand-yard stare and either drink or smoke yourself into a pit, and I'm not doing any of that now."
"Just sometimes talking about your troubles is better than anything else," added Ben Reed, who offers peer support for the project.
Mr Reed said the "problem" with many veterans was they isolated themselves by staying at home "24 hours-a-day".
The project gives them the opportunity to "get out in the air with other veterans to talk", he added.
Joanne Lawson, an occupational therapist of 30 years, runs the allotment sessions and said their focus was how to make veterans' "every day" easier.
"People will come or I will go and see people at home and they're very self contained. They're very insular," she explained.
Ms Lawson said often the veterans were unable to think about anybody else, apart from themselves.
"And when they come through, up (their) courage and start getting the support that they need, we start making links in the community and their lives are transformed."
