Get Loud about Mental Health, or quietly read a book!

03/05/2019

Bibliotherapy is yet another service from the Library - we have a wide selection of books to cover any need.  Self-help books are particularly popular, and hold promise to fix problems.  How to fix depression? anxiety? self-loathing?  Not simple at all, but there may be a book that will calm the beast within.  No complete answers to understanding others or yourself, but good words to build empathy and understanding during this Mental Health Week.  Here is a sampling of titles to try.
