Book Prescription Wales

Book Prescription Wales is a scheme funded by Welsh Government that provides access to information for people with mild to moderate emotional problems.

Making use of high quality self-help books that have been specially selected by psychologists and counsellors working in Wales, the scheme helps people self-manage their conditions.

Books can help with a range of subjects including abuse, anger, anxiety, assertiveness and self-esteem, bereavement, depression, eating disorders, and stress.

GPs, practice counsellors and members of community mental health teams can issue special prescriptions for self-help books. The books are available from all Torfaen libraries and can be borrowed free of charge.
