My new poetry collection for teens and young adults, You Are Not Alone, is all about mental health and wellbeing.
I’m creating a series of resources / guides to accompany the book, offering ideas and suggestions for using the poems in therapeutic, school, community or family settings to help explore different aspects of mental health and wellbeing. The second, Let’s Talk About Depression, is available now and you can view / download it here (right) or at www.troikabooks.com/you-are-not-alone
The first resource, Let’s Talk About Anxiety, is also available at Troika Books (link as above).
Forthcoming themes will include: Wellbeing & happiness; Family challenges; Navigating big changes; Difference & diversity; etc. If you’d like a heads-up when a new resource / guide is available, follow this blog and I’ll post updates here.
You can also drop me a line if there’s a particular topic or theme you’d like to suggest.
I’d love to hear from you if you’ve used any of these resources, to know how you got on! And, if you’d like me to drop in on a session (in person or via Zoom) to read some poems, do a Q&A, chat about mental health etc, please feel free to get in touch.
