Reading Well for young people

Our latest collection of Reading Well books offer tips and ideas to help young people understand and manage their emotions and cope with difficult situations.

Reading Well for young people (opens in a new window) recommends expert endorsed books about mental health, providing 13 to 18 year olds with advice and information about issues like anxiety, stress and OCD, and difficult experiences like bullying and exams.

Some of the books suggest useful self-help techniques but there are also personal stories, graphic novels and fiction. Reading about other people's experiences and feelings can sometimes help you understand your own.

The books [844kb] have all been recommended by young people and health professionals, and are available to borrow for free from the following libraries:

Look out for the Shelf Help stickers.

Free reservations for titles from the Reading Well booklist are available from all other Hillingdon libraries.

What if I need more help?

Your doctor will be able to offer support and advice and it can also be helpful to talk things through with other people such as family, friends or teachers.
