‘Social Prescribing for Mental Health’ at RSE Curious Summer Events Programme
The increasing use of arts, literature and culture to improve the public’s mental health.
NHS Scotland and England have both recognised social prescribing as a helpful way to improve the public’s health and mental health. Social prescribing is an approach that aims to connect people to access non-medical sources of support. The approach encompasses a wide variety of community activities, from book prescription to art, cultural activities, physical exercise etc. This event will bring together a panel of academics and professionals to discuss and debate the potential and limitations, as well as opportunities and obstacles, of social prescribing.
- This event is suitable for age 16+
- The discussion is not anticipated to be particularly triggering but nonetheless there will be some discussions on mental health
