Our financial situation can impact on our health and wellbeing. How we can improve our financial wellbeing will be shared in this webinar. The research shows links between hardship and mental health and financial worries that can affect every aspect of our lives, including our wider health and wellbeing. For this reason people refer and self-refer into groups that can offer support for these issues as part of social prescribing.
