Green Social Prescribing – supporting people to engage in nature-based activities
Social prescribing is a way for health professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services. A social prescribing link worker or health professional will refer people to activities in the community that support them or help to improve their health and wellbeing. Green social prescribing is the ambition to support people to engage in nature-based activities as a way of delivering mental health benefits they need.
