About the Event
Green Social Prescribing is increasingly being seen as one solution to preventing mild to moderate mental health conditions.
At a time when resources are ever more stretched could this become a way of helping the increasing numbers of people struggling with poor mental health and their families? In 2017 B&NES Council spent £ 33.3m on mental health. Might Green social prescribing also be a cheaper way of tackling the issue?
We are holding an event to explore how we can increase this activity and raise its profile in the Somer Valley. The event is aimed at all those in the health profession or running local community activities in the Somer Valley area, especially those responsible for providing and funding mental health services there.
Key speakers already booked are from Natural England, Frome Medical Centre and local GSP providers.
If you are interested, please join us on Tuesday 8th February. The schedule will be sent to you ahead of the event.
The event is organised jointly by 3SG and Natural England. If you have any accessibility requirements, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
