Dr You: Your Guide to Self-help

Your guide to self-help in the Western Isles

At some point in our lives, we may all be faced with an issue or concern that affects our health or well-being. It can be a worrying and isolating time, but having easy access to health information, and gaining a greater understanding of the condition, can make all the difference.

Dr You is a new local project aimed at supporting you to take more control of your health and well-being, by offering a wide range of books and information on health and medical issues, all available through your local public and mobile library.

The books provide advice on a range of common conditions to help you better understand your health. Some titles include information to help you cope with daily issues such as stress, anxiety and low self-esteem.

A full list of Dr You books and resources is available from your local library or online.  We have an extensive collection, including titles for children, young people and families, so do visit us to find out more.

Please note that the Dr You books do not offer or replace a doctor-patient relationship or consultation.  Should your reading not provide the answers or support you need, you can seek further advice from your doctor or other medical professionals. 

It is free to become a library member and borrow books. Simply visit a library, bringing proof of your address with you, and you can get a library card straight away.
