The Reading Well scheme is designed to help people use reading to understand and manage their mental health and wellbeing; to become more health wise.
The scheme includes books on specific problems and there is even a list of uplifting poetry, non-fiction and novels designed to give us a “mood boost”.
All the recommended books have been endorsed by health professionals and the books should be available from your local library.

And … don’t forget, libraries offer so much more that books these days. They are great places to go if you would like to explore your family history or join a reading group. They often have free Wi-Fi and run a variety of clubs and groups for all ages of the community.
