Read Your Mind

Jigsaw Tallaght and Jigsaw Clondalkin, in collaboration with South Dublin County Council, launched Read Your Mind on Friday 7th April at Tallaght Library.

Self-help books are now recognised as a vital source of support for people experiencing mental health difficulties. Read Your Mind brings together an invaluable collection of over 113 books on mental health that are available for free to young people, their parents, and friends at libraries across Tallaght and Clondalkin.  

The Read Your Mind catalogue is available to help people find the right book for them; covering topics including anger, anxiety, autism, bullying, creativity, low mood, mindfulness, parenting and families, social media, and much more. You can view the resource online or copies are available through Jigsaw Tallaght and Jigsaw Clondalkin, libraries in Tallaght and Clondalkin, post primary schools, and youth and community groups in the local area.

“We know that 1 in 5 young people will experience mental health difficulties before the age of 25,” said Gráinne McGill from Jigsaw Tallaght. “Read Your Mind is another way through which Jigsaw, in collaboration with South Dublin County Council, are supporting our local community in how we think about, respond to and support our young people with their mental health”.
