Anxiety, Depression & Stress
The Little Blue Book of Sunshine
Life can be tough! If school is pants, you’re trying to figure out who you are and parents are stressing you out… then why wouldn’t you feel down on the world? But that’s rubbish if it means you feel bad about yourself, lose confidence or can’t bounce back.
The Little Blue Book of Sunshine explains some of the things you can do right now to feel better, or who to turn to if things feel too much.
