Suffolk Libraries is getting behind a national scheme to support young people with mental health issues.

‘Reading Well for young people’ provides expert information and a recommended reading list to help tackle some of the mental health and wellbeing issues that young people face.

It is aimed at 13-18 years olds and provides high-quality information, support and advice on issues ranging from anxiety, depression, eating disorders and self-harm to difficult life pressures like bullying and exams.

It is part of the successful Reading Well Books on Prescription scheme which is already available through the library service and has been developed with the help of a panel of young people who have had experience of mental health issues.

The books can be recommended by GPs, school nurses, counsellors and other health professionals as well as being free to borrow from the library. For more details, visit www.reading-well.org.uk
