On our latest episode of Podcast on Prescription, Dr Radha Modgil speaks to comedian Justin Moorhouse. Describing himself as a ‘comedian then dog walker then parent’, Justin is a busy bloke! Normally found on the road touring up and the country for his comedy shows, Justin had to adapt through the pandemic and turned his hand to podcasting, volunteering and heading out into nature – while still making everyone he meets keel over with laughter.
In this episode, Justin talks about how volunteering has helped his own mental health and why connecting with people is so important – specially to tackle the loneliness many of us have felt during the pandemic. Dr Modgil and Justin also discuss the vital role social prescribing link workers play to build connections with individuals who may feel isolated and like they don’t have anyone to talk to.
