• Wee Read’s Big News!

    Had a brilliant week, my busy-ness over the last few months has gained a bit of funding from the See Me Campaign.

    This will be for a Community Innovation project in Hamilton and Blantyre, to fight mental health stigma with bibliotherapy.

    “See Me is driving change across Scotland that will help prevent suicide, empower people who have been discriminated against. Many people will not seek support due to the stigma they expect to face and the self stigma of feeling a burden. No one should ever be made to feel ashamed or embarrassed to tell anyone that they experience mental health problems. Together, we have a shared responsibility to understand what mental health stigma and discrimination feels like and drive home the message that everyone is entitled to and deserving of help and support. To stigmatise and discriminate is to mark someone as different.”

    If you are interested in having a fighting stigma session in your workplace or in a group, please contact me at christine@weeread.scot



Born in 1958 and brought up in Blantyre in a family of seven. Moved to Glasgow in 1976 and stayed until 2012. Then I moved back to Hamilton where I had attended secondary school, for 4 years. Home is now Glasgow, again, I am a weegie through 'n through. I have two daughters, and four granddaughters who all light up my life. My experience of working with poetry, writing, reading and so on is from my childhood. One of my poems was published in a school magazine when I was 12. I am now trying to publish my first grown-up booklet of poems within the next year or so. I trained and studied to become a librarian from 1977. It was the one job I wanted since reading in Hamilton Townhouse Library in the early 1970's!I watched the staff and thought, I'd like to work here... Bibliotherapy came into my life in 2007, at Glasgow Women's Library.
