Libraries on Prescription
15 Sep 2023
Can libraries be therapeutic? The answer is yes! Stories have the ability to change us at the emotional, social, behavioural and psychological level.
As part of our programme The Europe Challenge Athens Comics Library and Refugee Week present the report ‘Libraries on Prescription’, a social prescribing program for people who need support with their mental health, are lonely or isolated, belong to minorities or vulnerable groups, have complex social needs that affect their well-being, or have mental disorders created by the agony and impact of the Covid19 pandemic.
If you are interested in replicating this programme in your library, Athens Comics Library and Refugee Week are ready to support you. See their profile and contact details here.
