In this week’s Health News Briefing, which monitors trends in health from a spiritual perspective, Eric Bashor talks about a new twist on a ‘good book’.
Bashor shares news from theguardian newspaper which says, “GP’s to prescribe self-help books for mental health problems. People in England with mild to moderate mental health concerns including panic attacks, anxiety, and depression, are to be prescribed self-help books which they can borrow from their local library.” …”research shows that people who used them over a year had measurably lower levels of depression.”
It’s good news. Prescribing reading self-help books to treat mental health cases, may broaden drug-free health options and encourage a thought-based approach to addressing depression. Check out the video. Here’s to good health!
