Reading Well

Reading Well promotes the benefits of reading for health and wellbeing. The programme has two strands: Books on Prescription and Mood-boosting Books. It provides practical, self-help books that offer techniques and strategies for successfully managing and overcoming mental health problems.

Your GP may prescribe one of these books to help you with your condition.

Available at Chipping Barnet, Edgware, Hendon and North Finchley libraries, but other Barnet libraries also hold a selection of the recommended titles. Other recommendations include dementiaReading Well for young people, and long term conditions.
