Reading for a healthy mind

Healthy reading

Whether it's anger, anxiety, diet or stress, mental health issues affect us all.

Experts at NHS Lothian's Mental Health Service have come up with two lists of books to help you.

One list, which you can  see on our library catalogue, is for children, young people and families. It deals with topics such as depression, Schizophrenia, OCD and bereavement.

Another list on the catalogue contains the best books for adults who need help and advice with mental health issues.

Many libraries have self issue systems. This means you can collect and check the books out yourself.

You can also search Your Edinburgh to find more sources of advice such as useful web sites, charities and other organisations.
