What are books on prescription and how can they help?

Books on Prescription is a self-help scheme for people with mild to moderate mental health problems, whereby books and CDs based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy principles are offered to follow at the user's own pace.

Over 26 problem areas are covered, such as: depression, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive problems, social phobia, panic, anger and low self-esteem.  There are also titled available that help with lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking and weight management.

Books on Prescription are available:

  • to loan from your local library by using your library card
  • by visiting your GP and receiving a 'book prescription', which can be taken to any library to loan the book for up to eight weeks
  • from the Wellbeing Project

Many of the books have been written by leading Practitioners and the list of books on prescription includes titles from the acclaimed 'Overcoming Series' - please click here to view a list of books that are available.
