The topic for this week is Social Prescribing. This is a new movement that has suddenly been hailed as a panacea for the field of mental health. What is your opinion of social prescribing? Is it really something new? Should we all be getting on board or should we be more reserved? What are the strengths and weaknesses/barriers of implementation of social prescribing and how do you think this approach best contributes to promoting mental wellbeing (including for different populations)?
