Reading Well: Books on Prescription

Books can help you understand and manage your own health and wellbeing. We have books which are recommended by health experts, as well as by people who have life experience to share. These books can help you, your relatives or carers.

Books on Prescription can be recommended to you by a health professional, or you can visit your local library and choose them for yourself.

We have Reading Well books on topics such as:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Dementia
  • Eating disorders
  • Bereavement
  • Low self-esteem

All of our libraries have Health and Wellbeing sections which cover both physical and mental health issues, for both adults and children. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, ask a member of staff and we’ll find the right book for you.
