What is Social Prescribing?
Show Notes

In this episode we're exploring the subject of 'Social Prescribing', and how it can help those who are struggling with their mental wellbeing?  Is it a vital resource for people managers and mental health first aiders to be aware of during their conversations with struggling team members and colleagues?

To discuss this subject, I'm joined by Kim Brindley, a Social Prescribing Link Worker (SPLW) from Northamptonshire, the region where Social Prescribing was initially launched in 2019

Kim has been a Social Prescriber since 2020, and has worked with countless individuals to help them manage their wellbeing.  Kim's past experience includes being an NHS HealthCare Assistant, and NHS Smoking Cessation Practitioner
