Book My Mind collection in LJMU Libraries

As part of the bibliotherapy initiative, our Student Advice and Wellbeing Team and Library have joined together to create Book My Mind; a collection of books that have been specifically chosen by our Counsellors, Wellbeing Advisors and Mental Health Team. 

Our collection of books covers a wide range of issues such as anxiety, depression, loneliness and include a variety of approaches such as cognitive behavioural therapy to mindfulness.
