eBooks about stress, anxiety, and other health questions

As a follow-up to Francesca’s post about finding and evaluating health information, we wanted to provide you with reliable health and wellness books that are available electronically through McGill.

Typically you would find these types of books physically in our Wendy Patrick Health Information Collection. Since the Library buildings are closed, we have pulled together lists of health and wellness eBooks in our collection, as it can be difficult to find them in the catalogue.

We have highlighted a few books on stress, mindfulness, and anxiety on our Consumer Health Guide as we know it is a stressful and anxious time for most of us (You can also access them by clicking on each of the images above). We hope these books might provide tools to help you cope a little better.

You can find more titles on a variety of health and wellness topics on the following lists:

There is no formal way to search the lists, but you can use Control + F to search the titles for the topic you are interested in. You can also contact health sciences librarians Jill Boruff and Lucy Kiester, who would be happy to help with your health and wellness questions.

We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well during this unprecedented time.
