Turn the Page
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.
In this programme Puke Ariki and the 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.
The library catalogue and databases has material and resources on a huge range of subjects, including mental health issues - search here for what interests you!
