Social prescribing for young people

Could social prescribing help you?

Our social prescribing team works with young people aged 13-25 in Sheffield to help them with issues such as low mood, loneliness and anxiety.

Social prescribing is a way of supporting you with your wellbeing. Simply put, it can help you to feel better about yourself, your life, and any challenges you might be facing.

Social prescribing finds non-medical solutions to problems people are experiencing. Rather than writing a prescription for a medication, a social prescribing link worker can signpost you to a source of non-medical support in the area where you live, such as a community group or class.

Taking part in sport, cycling, walking, creative arts, volunteering and dancing are all examples of activities you might be ‘prescribed’. But don’t worry, a social prescribing link worker will work closely with you to find out about the things you enjoy (or have done in the past) and about your values and the things that matter most to you.
