Reading Well Books On Prescription Scheme

This scheme aims to bring reading's healing benefits to the 6 million people with anxiety, depression and other mild to moderate mental health illnesses. There is growing evidence to show that self-help reading can help people with certain mental health conditions get better.

Reading Well Books on Prescription will enable GPs and mental health professionals to prescribe patients cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) through a visit to the library. Here they can get books to help them understand and manage conditions from depression to chronic pain. The scheme works within NICE guidelines, and uses 30 books endorsed by health partners as having evidenced CBT benefits.
