We are working on the Activate Project which is promoting social prescribing across Europe to empower at risk adults to improve their health literacy and take responsibility for their own health.

Social Prescribing is a powerful, proven community mechanism to improve the physical, emotional, mental wellbeing of adults by connecting you to non-medical community-based sources of supports.

While the benefits of social prescribing are vast & the process relatively simple, social prescribing is still a relatively unknown community approach to embedding lifelong learning as a resource for living. The Activate Social Prescribing for Community Learning project seeks to promote the principle of social prescribing to adults across EU.

We are delighted to let you know that the Mind Yourself Now – Health Empowerment Guide is now available to download.
