NHS Direct Wales: Book Prescription Wales

Book Prescription Wales is a scheme that aims to help people experiencing mild to moderate emotional problems with high quality self-help books that have been specially selected by psychologists and counsellors working in Wales.

The scheme works by a GP or other health professional prescribing a book from the collection they believe could help. The books are available for people to borrow for free from libraries across Wales.

Book Prescription Wales could help you through a wide range of issues including anger, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, low self-esteem and stress.

You can see the books that are included in the scheme in our catalogue here or by searching for the exact phrase ‘book prescription wales’ in Primo - the Library Catalogue.
