Elemental Software: What’s new in Social Prescribing?

Elemental would like to welcome our new customers that have gone live on Elemental this past month; Edinburgh City, East Lothian, North Highlands and Argyle and Bute. Thank you for choosing us as your digital social prescribing partner. 

Investing in student welfare via social prescribing – best practice session

We recently hosted two of our customers, Finneen Bradley from the North West Regional College and Natasha Whitelaw from Wrexham Glyndŵr University, on a webinar to discuss social prescribiing and the use of Elemental in their organisations. Their organisations are leading the way in student wellbeing and implementing social prescribing in education. If you would like to watch the recording, please email [email protected]

There has never been a more important time for further education and university institutions to take decisive and proactive action in collaboration with other sectors to enhance their wellbeing programmes and introduce a model of care that will effectively address, manage and combat the mounting mental health and wellbeing crisis amongst students.

Due to not being able to attend face-to-face classes or experience student accommodation in normal settings, it’s easy to see how the pandemic has had a negative effect on students’ mental health and wellbeing.

It’s also made it even harder for further education and university institutions to deliver, manage and track student wellbeing programmes. Many students have had issues with online learning, social isolation, financial hardship, feelings of fear, hopelessness, frustration and fear of COVID-19, which can no doubt take its toll on mental wellbeing. 

Upcoming Events

Join us for our upcoming webinars. First up we have our June Elemental Open Lounge on Wednesday 15th June. This month’s theme is How to Manage Population Health. We will be taking a closer look at some of the accredited monitoring tools used on the Elemental platform and how these are used to help manage population health by identifying the needs of communities and assessing the impact of social prescribing programmes on population health. 

Then on Tuesday 21st June, we will be hosting one of our customers for our Mental Health and Social Prescribing webinar. We will be discussing the impact social prescribing has on Mental Health Foundation Trusts and the benefits of the new integration between Elemental Software and Rio EPR. 

Register here for our webinars.
