Read what Marion has to say:
"I am passionate about working to improve mental health and wellbeing. I believe a connection to other people is imperative in improving and maintaining good mental health. As such, I see social prescribing as a lifeline for members of the community that feel alone and isolated. I work in an area where rural isolation is a problem, and I can be asked to support service users who are prevented from joining groups and clubs because of a lack of transportation. In cases like these, I do my best to find some kind of alternative, but if that fails, I highlight the problem locally to raise awareness around the issue."
