PROGRAMS & SERVICES
Words Heal, Inc. is the leader in providing recommendations and research to support the use of literature by underrepresented people to cope with life’s struggles. We use our diverse corps of staff and volunteers to reach mental health and health practitioners, public libraries and the general public to increase the use of bibliotherapy. Our work helps those who contribute most to the health of our society understand the power of words to heal.
The Elder Diaries podcast is the first of its kind - delivering a targeted mental wellness tool to seniors, through oral history interviews. Through touching, humorous and RAW human experiences, you'll see what it means to thrive as a elder American. We've selected the best stories from ordinary people with extraordinary lessons learned, from aging crises.
