Better with books

The Better with Books scheme provides self-help books to children and young people to help them deal with emotional issues and give additional guidance.

The books include topics such as:

  • bereavement
  • divorce
  • bullying
  • low self esteem
  • depression
  • puberty
  • anger

Research has shown the effectiveness of high quality self-help books.

Children and young people in particular may find it difficult to talk about their emotions. Reading a book may help them understand their feelings and give them advice on how to cope.

There are also books available to help guide parents and guardians.
