Bibliotherapy for Mental Health Awareness, 2 March

Have you seen the Library’s bibliotherapy display on our Ground Floor promoting a new Bibliotherapy online reading list. It is just one of several initiatives promoting University Mental Health Day on Thursday 2 March include themed talks and walks – which begin at the Chaplaincy behind the Library.

‘Bibliotherapy’ means therapeutic reading to help us understand our mental and emotional troubles, and how to cope with them. The Library holds a selection of self-help books on a variety of challenges including stress, anxiety, addition, bereavement and insomnia, to name but a few.

Reading students can use our Talis Aspire Bibliotherapy online reading list to see which books are available to them online or are loanable from the Library. Alternativly pick up a leaflet from the display or check out the useful resources, including guides and bibliotherapy lists, produced by UoR Counselling and Wellbeing.

Maybe one of these bibliotherapy books can help you begin to turn your world around – after all, 2 March is also World Book Day!
