Future Libraries are alive and kicking and about making a difference to communities and individuals. We’ve teamed up with NHS Lothian to launch a new range of books and resources aimed at helping young people and families cope with mental health issues.
The collection, recommended by NHS Lothian’s Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service , offers information, greater understanding and advice to help children, young people, parents and carers who are dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression, bullying and eating disorders. The books are all available for loan in public and school libraries.
In addition to the interactive resources and book list there are also some helpful links to various mental health support groups and organisations on the Council website.
Library members can quickly order any book from the list and collect from their local library by using the online reservation service and 24 hour library.
