Social Prescribing and Mental Health Project Updates


Our Social Prescribing and Mental Health Project is still ongoing. Our primary goal is to gain insight into individuals' experiences with social prescribing, particularly in the context of mental health support. Additionally, we aim to identify the challenges people face when accessing social prescribing services. Through these efforts, we hope to enhance awareness of social prescribing as an available service in Barking and Dagenham.


We have been actively engaging with various local groups and individuals with mental health needs. We are actively seeking for more individuals who have benefited from the social prescribing service to share their valuable insights and experiences with us.
