Reading Well

A project of The Reading Agency, Reading Well is on a mission to bring health to your bookshelf with book lists curated by health professionals and those with lived experience on a variety of topics. On the Home page, readers will find the five book lists available as of this write-up. These lists cover the following topics: mental health, young people, children, dementia, and long term conditions. Each compilation also addresses several subtopics of these broader themes. For example, the mental health book list includes books on managing anxiety and depression and mindfulness guides from those with lived experience. Similarly, the children's list (designed for elementary-age children) covers topics such as self-esteem, emotions, and living with autism and ADHD. The books are either available for free download (as an ebook or audiobook) or are widely available from local libraries. More than one million users have enjoyed these reading lists and the site's other great resources. Librarians may want to check out the "Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 Library toolkit" found on the Resources page, and many readers may find solace in the "Stay Connected: Self-management during the Covid-19 outbreak" article on the News page. Reading Well is funded by Arts Council England and the Welsh Government and is available in English and Welsh.
