How do we influence key role players in South Africa to recognize the importance of social prescribing

Imagine being completely mindful in a place where you have never felt more connected to the world around you. Across the world, including the UK and USA, surf therapy has been recognized as an effective and sustainable intervention model as part of Social Prescribing. Social prescribing has provided local organizations an opportunity to refer people to community groups or initiatives for practical and emotional support. These community groups or initiatives give people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. There is emerging evidence that social prescribing can lead to a range of positive health and emotional outcomes for people ultimately resulting in an improved quality of life. How do we influence key role players in South Africa to recognize the importance of social prescribing and embracing programmes like surf therapy as an intervention model focusing on wellness not illness, on ability not disability?
