Social prescription for care

Monday, November 6th
3:45 – 4:35 p.m.

Social prescribing connects caregivers to arts, culture, nature, and other non-clinical interventions with a focus on improving mental health, decreasing isolation, and reducing barriers to financial and practical supports. This session will explore the benefits of social prescription, examples of its use, and how it can benefit caregivers. Hear from experts in the field and early adopters and innovators about this approach to health and care, and an exciting new CCCE supported project.
