Mood Boosting Books

In September, we will be launching our Student Well-being Library. Inspired by the 'Books on Prescription' scheme running in local libraries around the country, we have successfully bid for a community grant from Tesco to create our own Well-being Libraries in school for staff and students. The libraries house books around mental health and well-being in order to guide and inform, in addition to works of fiction identified as 'mood lifting books'.

We hope that by creating a library for both staff and students we can foster a culture of openness and therefore help to reduce the stigma around mental health. Books will be available to all secondary phase pupils in the school library from September.
