Healthy reading collection

Healthy reading in the libraries.

The Healthy Reading Programme has been developed to make it easier to access mental health and well-being leaflets, books, CDs, DVDs and web-based support. All South Lanarkshire libraries have resources which are aimed at helping people get the most from life such as living life to the full, sleeping better and becoming more confident and assertive. Healthy reading can be helpful for people to overcome and cope with mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, stress, dementia and panic. There are also resources for all ages including supporting young people, adults and older people as well as items on positive parenting.

The programme has been developed because healthy reading increases the availability of support, information and self-help which can improve mental health and well-being for many people.
