A new initiative funded by the Arts Council will see GPs prescribe books for patients who suffer from mental health issues. Patients can choose from a selection of 30 titles available at their local libraries.
The Arts Council has pledged over Ģ20,000 to ensure that the public libraries have designated list of texts for problems ranging from "anger" to "worry".
