Exercise on prescription is common, but many primary care trusts are only just becoming aware of the potential of offering parallel access to other activities.

He highlights the benefits of co‐working between artists and mental health workers, pinpoints issues relating to image and marketing and urges us to consider how we can support people to continue moving forward in their lives.
