Reading Well for Young People
The Reading Well for Young People booklist has been developed to provide young people, aged 13 to 18, with high-quality support, information and advice and positive narrative about common mental health and related conditions. The books have been selected by a panel of health experts and young people, in partnership with the mental health charity YoungMinds.
The scheme is delivered by The Reading Agency and Society of Chief Librarians with funding from Arts Council England and the Wellcome Trust, and is endorsed by health professionals and supported by public libraries.
JKP is proud to have published 7 or the 35 selected titles.
