University of Exeter evaluation of Reading Well

 dsc7389

Have you borrowed one of the titles on the Reading Well Books on Prescription for adult common mental health conditions list? It’d be great to hear about it.

The evaluation

The University of Exeter are working with The Reading Agency and library authorities across England to conduct an evaluation of Reading Well Books on Prescription.

They’re looking to explore the acceptability of the scheme: what people liked and disliked, which books they borrowed, how they used the book, the benefits of the scheme to the community and how we can improve the scheme for the future.

How to take part

The University of Exeter are running two studies:

• A short anonymous survey, which can be completed by post, telephone or online.

• Interviews over the telephone about people’s experience of using the self-help title

Get involved

If you’ve read a title, complete the online survey.
