Innovative social prescribing services supports young people to better mental health

Our Gedling and Hucknall PCNs are working with Base 51 to address the mental health needs of children and young people.

They are delivering a bespoke social prescribing service for young people aged 11 to 24 years. Via a referral from a GP Practice, the team of social prescribers and counsellors will assess and work with a young person to determine what help and support they need.

To help with this, they carry out a HEADSS Assessment (Home, Education, Activities, Drugs, Suicidality and Sex).

From here, once this information is gathered, the team can look at the best way forward for the young person. You can find out more about this service by watching the video below…
