Our Book Club
Reading can open your mind to new ways of thinking about the world. It can also help reduce stress, deepen understanding, sharpen critical thinking, and inspire engagement with others on a particular topic. In short, reading connects us to one another.
It’s why we created the RIVIA Book Club – to serve as a bridge for communication. We’ll tell you what book we’re reading each quarter, with the hope that you’ll join us. Doing so can stimulate productive discussions and build on the sense of community between you and your mental health treatment team.
