New Book Club Launches in Chiswick
Will focus on books published on mental wellbeing
The ‘Read Well’ Book Club describes itself as a new friendly and welcoming monthly Book Club bringing local people together to read and reflect on books being published on mental wellbeing.
This is an initiative from ‘Better Mental Health in Chiswick’ – a volunteer group established in Autumn 2018 to improve mental health locally, working in partnership with other organisations who share their vision and ways of working, and piloting new ideas by raising the profile of mental health and challenging stigma.
They believe community and taking time to be creative can help in strengthening everyone’s mental health and happiness and help reduce social isolation; reading can be a solitary activity and they want to bring people together to share thoughts and experiences.
Sally Malin from Better Mental Health in Chiswick’ says, ``It’s good news that so many books are now being published on the important topic of mental health. Read Well Book Club hopes to create a welcoming space to explore together what’s helpful - and what isn’t !. We are delighted to be launching as part of this year’s local Chiswick Book Festival. Come and meet us on Wednesday 11 September at 6:30 in Waterstones, Chiswick High Road as part of the Local Authors Event “
