Uplifting authors for Mental Health Month

Mental Health Month LogoLast month we asked you to contribute an uplifting book for Mental Health Month and the Books on Prescription program. You can see some of the responses here and here.

The final list of 252 books has been released by the Australian Library and Information Association. These are the authors whose books appear again and again on the shortlist. You might like to revisit an old favourite! Check TAFEcat for copies at your campus library.

This is a comment one respondent sent in about the Harry Potter Series:

Re-reading this series is like meeting a friend for coffee that I haven’t seen in a year, nothing has changed and we’re still super close, but we don’t see each other enough. So I smile, enjoy every second, and make the most of the time we have together.
