Health and wellbeing

Walker Library

Reading Well Books on Prescription is a national scheme run with a number of GP surgeries in Newcastle, where GPs 'prescribe' books that help you manage your mental wellbeing for a range of common mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, phobias and some eating disorders. Find out more about Reading Well Books on Prescription.

As well as a wide range of books, there is useful website information, leaflets and a set of self help booklets. For more information, visit the health and wellbeing page.
