Wellbeing Book Club

The Mental Health Support Team (MHST) is excited to introduce its newest project. A wellbeing book club! 

Reading is a great way to relax and has positive benefits for our mental health too! Research has found that reading helps to reduce stress, increase concentration and combat insomnia. Reading with your child not only strengthens the parent-child bond but also helps children to develop empathy and emotional awareness, teaching children that it is okay to feel emotions and how to cope with their feelings in healthy ways. 

What’s not to love? 

At the start of each school term we will be releasing a MHST Book Club Newsletter which will have 4 book recommendations (don’t worry you don’t have to read them all!) that deal with the topic of mental health and wellbeing for all ages, along with some conversational prompts and questions to get you thinking!
