  • Enhancing services around local communities

What is social prescribing and how can it help students

Our award-winning social prescribing software is revolutionising the way students in Higher Education access wellbeing support by delivering a sustainable and replicable approach to tackling wellbeing challenges grounded in social prescribing.

How social prescribing can improve mental health

Social prescribing is an important approach to self-management of mental
health. The model of care is based on supporting people within our
communities to access non-medical and non-clinical sources of support
that can help combat health inequalities, mental health, and wellbeing
concerns. Focusing on mental health, there is a wide variety of social
prescribing models that can be used to target rural and urban community
populations, cohort groups, and vulnerable individuals with different
intended outcomes.

What is social prescribing?

Social prescribing is a model that enables health and social care professionals to refer people to a range of non-medical services within their community to improve social, mental, physical health and wellbeing. Recognising that people’s health and wellbeing is determined by a range of social, economic, and environmental factors, social prescribing takes a
holistic approach that empowers people to take control of their own health and to identify ways to improve how they are feeling with the practical and emotional support of a social prescribing link worker.
