A Guide to UConn Library Resources on Wellness and Self-Care

BIPOC Wellness Books (Black, Indigenous, People of Color)

Welcome!  This page features books on mental health and wellness that are written by writers of color.  Topics include Black mental health in the US, racial trauma, Asian American communities, Native American and Latinx wellness, and more.  The library has many more titles on BIPOC wellness than can be featured on this page; this page is intended to highlight selected recently purchased titles.  In addition, the library has many wellness titles in the Leisure Reading Collection, which is on the B Level of Babbidge Library.  The B Level of Babbidge Library is located one floor below the entrance Plaza level.

Also, please note that the library's Muslim prayer space is now on the B level near the Government documents.  Follow the sign for government documents and the space is located after the shelving, near the bathrooms.  This space features a large foam mat and prayer rugs.  It can also be used as space for stretching or yoga.
