Those who love reading sometimes are not able to find a book of their own. In a way this is a problem. Often a book can help us more than a psychologist. Keele University in England, decided to open a Poetry Pharmacy where people with mental health problems receive help in the form of literature.
The poetry pharmacy opened in Shropshire, England, on October 4. Free consultations are available on Fridays.
“We believe that poetry can change the mood for the better and improve mental health”, said Deborah Alma, pharmacist.
Poetry Pharmacy operates in Georgia as well, but unlike England it is students project.
Poetry Pharmacy was born at Ilia State University but nowadays it unites students from different universities.
