Social Prescribing is a means for health-care providers to connect patients to a range of non-clinical services in their community in order to improve their health and well-being. It can help to address underlying causes of health challenges as it promotes community-based integrated care and support.

Participants at the Conference will discover and learn about what social prescribing means in Saskatchewan and elsewhere.

Presentations and personal stories will demonstrate how social prescribing is working now – and encourage thinking about how social prescribing might spread throughout Saskatchewan.
