British doctors can now prescribe books to treat mental illness
Britain's National Health Service (NHS) has launched a new program allowing doctors to prescribe books for some mental illnesses. Doctors fill out a prescription with the names of books and the prescription is filled at the local library. The bibliotherapy program covers several conditions including mild to moderate depression, obsessive compulsive disorder and anxiety. You can read more about it in this Boston Globe article.
