If you or someone you know is struggling with depression, stress, anxiety or grief then Turn the Page could help offer a helping hand on the road to wellness.

Puke Ariki and Community Libraries are working with health professionals to give people experiencing mild to moderate mental health issues access to a range of self-help books.

How does it work?

  • A GP writes a Turn the Page 'prescription' - a list of books recommended by mental health professionals
  • Take your prescription to the library and borrow the book for free
  • You can find and check-out the book yourself or ask a librarian for help

Ask your GP if Turn The Page might be right for you and click here for a list of books available in the library.
