Reading Well: Shelf Help
There’s a new addition to our Reading Well booklists. Shelf Help has books to help young people cope with difficult feelings and experiences. The titles have been chosen by young people themselves as well as medical experts. The books have information and advice as well as personal stories about dealing with feelings such as anxiety, depression or stress and experiences such as bullying. Reading about other people’s experiences and feelings can sometimes help with understanding your own. Pick up the leaflet and the books in your local library – they’re free to borrow.
If you need more help, your GP will be able to offer help and advice. mycamhschoices.org has information and short films on mental health services or visit youngminds.org.uk.
