Self-help books on prescription

Calderdale libraries are now participating in Books on Prescription, a new national campaign where your GP, Nurse Practitioner or other health professional can prescribe self-help books, which are available in many Calderdale libraries and can be borrowed for free.

The Books on Prescription scheme provides self-help books, all expert-endorsed and supported by the Department of Health, for a range of common, mild or moderate mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, anger and some eating disorders.

One in four people have a mental health problem and January in particular is a difficult time for some.
