Talking about Social Prescribing

Our Manager for the new Social Prescribing and My Time Service in Portsmouth talks about how the service can support you.
The My Time service supports carers in their role and to have a break, as we know this role can be quite challenging. Our staff and volunteers are flexible and will work with you to create a plan of activities and outings that your loved one might like to do on a good day and alternatives for quiet days.
The Social Prescribing service helps people with their mental health by prescribing a more holistic response to people’s needs through an alternative activity rather than medication. They support people who are experiencing financial pressures, social isolation or lack of confidence which is adversely affecting their health and wellbeing.
