Reading Well

Reading Well Books on Prescription works within NICE guidelines.  It is an early intervention treatment and part of 'watchful waiting' at step one in the Stepped Care model for mental health and Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Programme (APT).  General Practitioners can recommend self-help reading to people they might not yet refer to IAPT services, or to use while waiting for treatment.  Books can also be recommended by other health professionals including mental health nurses, counsellors and IAPT psychological well being practitioners.
