Wokingham Borough Libraries Join Reading Well Scheme

With unprecedented pressures such as cyber-bullying, cyber addiction and bombardment by the media to conform to impossible standards of beauty, young people are increasingly experiencing mental health problems.

With this is mind, Wokingham Borough Libraries is joining a national scheme offering books to help young people with mental health issues.

Reading Well for young people is part of the Reading Well Books on Prescription scheme, which provides 13 to 18-year-olds with high quality information, support and advice on a wide range of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-harm and difficult life pressures such as bullying and exams.

The books can be recommended by GPs, school nurses, counsellors and other professionals as well as available to borrow free from any Wokingham Borough Library.
