This Mental Health Awareness Week the Doorstep Library team are sharing their favourite comfort books.
Studies have shown that reading as little as six minutes per day can improve your quality of sleep, reduce stress and sharpen the mind. As it is Mental Health Awareness Week we wanted to shed light on the power of books and their ability to help us build a greater sense of connection and empathy towards those around us and their innate power to help us feel less alone.
We asked our team to tell us what their favourite comfort books were growing up and the stories that took them to different worlds, below are their responses.
For book recommendations for children’s mental health read our Book Recommendations for Children’s Mental Health.
We hope these books inspire you in Mental Health Awareness Week.
