Mental Health Reads

It is a frightening time.  Do you find yourself checking the news headlines constantly, feeling anxious, and wondering how bad things might get? If so, you are not alone.  Just as vitamins may help build up your immunity, these reads may very well work as “vitamins for your mind”– to help reduce anxiety, bring a little more positivity, and help you focus on things you can control.  All are available as ebooks on Overdrive through eBCCLS.
