Bibliotherapy is a therapeutic approach that can support good mental health. Reading can lead to normalizing the experience of a mental health issue along with expediting the treatment response.
Research has shown that when an individual reads about or interacts with another individual who might be facing similar struggles, they tend to draw strength from the fact that they are not alone. Many times, especially while battling mental health issues, we tend to feel alone and in some cases, also isolate ourselves. It is here where a good book can do wonders. Reading as therapy can aid the issue at hand, make the reader feel less alienated and also draw strength from the stories of others.
