Social prescribing, mental health and health in criminal justice populations
Over a number of years I have worked as a researcher across a diverse range of projects which have sought to improve health outcomes with evidence. Common to each of these projects has been the partnership, working with key stakeholders in the consultation, design, implementation, promotion and evaluation of interventions and/or services.
I have found that working in partnership with organisations, their staff and their servce users has helped us as a research team to identify how best to approach the research in a way that has been feasible and acceptable to those organisations, their staff and to those in receipt of that service.
