The “life-saving” 2018 ‘Reading Well for mental health’ titles by The Reading Agency and Society of Chief Librarians were announced today at a flagship event at the Wellcome Trust (5 June).

“Initiatives like this make people with mental health conditions and their carers feel less lonely.” - Sathnam Sanghera (Reading Well author, The Boy with the Topknot)

Each title will offer invaluable support to people with mental health needs and their carers, who are at increased risk of loneliness according to recent research. 

2018’s powerful book list, which will help people read well to stay well, is penned by bestselling and highly-regarded authors including Matt Haig (How to Stay Alive); Cathy Rentzenbrink (A Manual for Heartache); Sathnam Sanghera (The Boy with the Topknot); Ruby Wax (A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled) and many more.
