Reading Well and World Mental Health Day

This World Mental Health Day (10 October), check out Every Mind Matters, a new campaign from Public Health England. Every Mind Matters helps you feel more confident in managing your mental health by creating your own digital action plan containing a range of self-care strategies – such as borrowing a Reading Well book from your local library! Create an action plan today: nhs.uk/oneyou/mental-health  

Reading Well supports you to understand and manage your health and wellbeing using helpful reading available in libraries. The books are all chosen and endorsed by health experts, as well as by people living with the conditions covered and their relatives and carers. You can be recommended a title by a health professional, or you can visit your local library and take a book out yourself. Many Reading Well titles are also available in ebook and audiobook format.
