Nature-on-prescription intervention development
  • Seminar Room 3, John Bull Building, Plymouth Science Park

Save event

This seminar presented by Kerryn Husk will outline a new project being set up jointly at the Universities of Plymouth and Exeter which aims to manualise a ‘nature-on-prescription’ intervention for people with common mental health conditions. 

There is considerable variation in the type and scope of nature-based activities provided through social prescribing, and in how frequently people attend, and for how long. It is unclear which activities are most likely to have a positive impact. A number of aspects of the interventions may have a positive impact. 

This new project will use a structured approach to design a programme of nature-based, group activities suitable for prescribing through primary care and other pathways. 

Please email laura.gill@plymouth.ac.uk to book a place.

This seminar is part of the DECI (Developing and Evaluating Complex Interventions) series. Visit the DECI webpage for more information or please email cath.quinn@plymouth.ac.uk to be added to the mailing list.
