What is it?

Organise a launch or celebration event for the Reading Well for Young People list.

What sort of space will you need?

This could take place in the same place you do Reading Hack, or you could use it as an opportunity to reach more young people and join up with another local school, library or youth group.

When could it take place?

On key dates such as Mental Health Awareness Week (8th-14th May) and World Mental Health Day (10th October) or to celebrate the launch of Reading Well for Young People in your school or library.


Publicise the event through schools, library networks, young people's and mental health services and on social media.

Invite local mental health organisations and young people's services to speak or set up an advice stall.

Plan some entertainment, such as a reading from one of the books on the list or an author visit.
