Better with Books (Wales)

This scheme provides self-help books to children and young people to help them deal with emotional issues and give additional guidance.

Research has shown the effectiveness of high quality self-help books.

Children and young people in particular may find it difficult to talk about their emotions. Reading a book may help them understand their feelings and give them advice on how to cope.  There are also books available to help guide parents and guardians.

Books can be recommended by GPs, school counsellors, school nurses, teachers, youth centre staff and others who might be approached by a young person for some advice / guidance.
