Libraries across the country are joining with First Fortnight to shine a spotlight on mental health-related books during the month of January.
From factual texts to brilliant works of fiction and helpful information books, readers will be spoilt for choice as libraries highlight texts that will open up discussion around mental health.
Libraries include braches in Kildare, Kilkenny, Kerry, Roscommon, Offaly, Meath, Waterford, and Clare, but remember every library has a wealth of information, so just ask your local librarian for help!
Below are links to access reading lists which feature contributions from County Libraries and Councils, Children’s Books Ireland, HSE, Jigsaw and Reading Well.
