Social Prescribing

We know that coronavirus and its impact are causing stress and worry for lots of us. That’s why we have made the social prescribing service even easier to access. Social prescribing can help you by introducing you to a wide range of activities and support to help you turn things around. There’s no longer a need for a GP referral, you can just get in touch with us today to find out more.

Who can take part?

If you’re over 18 and struggling with your mental health, especially if you’re out of work, have money problems, feel lonely or have a physical health problem, then social prescribing can help.

You can take part in our social prescribing service even if you’re taking medication or receiving support for an existing mental health problem.

How does it work?

Send us an email or give us a call to ask about our social prescribing service. Our trained link worker will then arrange a call where you can tell us how you’re feeling and what you think might help to improve your wellbeing.

These could include overcoming anxieties and worries around relationships, financial matters, housing, physical health, stress and panic attacks, depression and loneliness or general Covid-19 and lockdown concerns

Your link worker will recommend and help you to access a range of support and advice services to suit your needs. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, many services and support networks are still available.
