We are supporting the SGSU Mental Wellness week by putting up a book collection that includes celebrity stories of mental illness, meditation CDs, Ten Minute Stress Relief, an anti-stress poetry anthology, and books about depression and OCD. Whether you want to find out more about mental illness, or get a book to help you relax and de-stress, come by the Library to check out the display.
We also have two curated collections you can browse online. Clicking on the book image inside the Wakelet will take you to information about the item’s availability in the Library.
Tying in with 10 Days of Wellbeing programme (SGUL login required) run by St George’s Staff Development team, we are running a book swap in the library foyer from Monday 20 June to Friday 1 July, to promote reading for relaxation and pleasure, as well introducing a new collection of books.
Book Swap in the library foyer from 20 June – 1st July
From 20 June – 1 July, we’ll be putting out a trolley of fiction books in library for you to enjoy. St George’s staff and student are free to pick a book to read (initial collection kindly donated by Library staff) and to drop off a book on the trolley for sharing with others.
The Schizophrenia systematic review in Clinical Evidence has been updated, highlighting some of the major shortcomings of available trials in this field and an astonishing lack of supporting evidence for some treatment options. An essential read not just for practitioners of evidence-based mental health but also researchers and research funders in the field.
