PaRx – A Prescription for Nature program – new to BC!

Spotlight On Mental Health

What a great idea!

PaRx is a nature prescription program where licenced healthcare providers in BC (and other provinces) can prescribe time outdoors to help people manage their physical and mental health. Patients who participate earn entries for monthly draws and can access free admission to local green spaces like the UBC Botanical Gardens and Nitobe Memorial Garden. Healthcare providers can also prescribe a Parks Canada Discovery Pass, which covers admission to national parks.
