Welcome to the Diploma in Social Prescribing
Have you ever thought about how doing activities you enjoy affects your wellbeing? Social prescribing takes this as a concept to help individuals, instead of prescribing medication or medical treatments.
Social Prescribing is a way for healthcare professionals to support health and well-being by connecting individuals to non-medical services and activities in the community, that can help improve overall health and quality of life.
Social prescribing recognises that health is not just about the absence of illness; it’s also about having a fulfilling and meaningful life. By addressing social and lifestyle factors, it aims to improve your health and quality of life in a holistic way.
It’s about acknowledging the connection between mind, body, and soul, which can be enriched by community engagement, purposeful activities, and authentic connections.
