What is social prescribing?
The aim of social prescribing is to look at ‘what matters to the individual’ . In doing so it takes a holistic approach to both an individual’s health and wellbeing.
It strives to give individuals more control over their lives and what things are affecting their wellbeing. It is not always the case that a prescription for ‘medication’ or what is viewed as traditional treatments will help to make an individual feel better in themselves but instead, social prescribing may be the answer.
