Find out about Surrey libraries' selection of self-help books


Surrey County Council libraries is part of the national ‘Reading Well’ scheme and offer a selection of self-help books for children and young people with mild to moderate mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.

Themes such as anger management and stress are among the titles that have been recommended by GPs and other health professionals.

All titles encourage self awareness and understanding of health issues and help children and young people to develop strategies for coping that will aid improvement to their health and wellbeing.


Take a look at the libraries’ web pages to see a list of the libraries involved in the scheme and how to get copies of the books both hard copy and online.
