Mental Health Awareness Week - Mood Boosting and Books on Prescription book collections at Bodleian Health Care Libraries

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and a perfect opportunity to highlight our Mood Boosting Books and Books on Prescription collections. 

Our Mood Boosting collection is loosely based on the Reading Agencies list of uplifting titles, including novels, poetry and non-fiction, which we have also interspersed with some titles of our own choosing. The collection is based on a bookshelf near the quiet study area on the left hand side of the Cairns library.

Our Books on Prescription or Wellbeing collections contain a number of self-help books providing quality-assured health information and advice to help you understand and manage common mental health conditions. These can be found in the main book collections at our four libraries, based across the JR, Churchill, NOC and Horton Hospital sites.

Our Mood Boosting and Books on Prescription collections are available to all students and staff, so why not take some time this week to come and take a look. If you have any difficulties locating them, our friendly library staff will be happy to help you.

Please contact us at, if you have any questions.
