We talk about our physical health – but not so much about how we’re feeling, or what we’re thinking and worrying about. That’s why we’ve published books including The Unworry Book and Looking After Your Mental Health, to help children learn more about their emotions and what can influence them.
This inspiring write-in book is an unworry toolkit, full of things to calm you down and places to put your worries - and we all worry! Written with the help of a psychologist, there are links to websites for tips, advice and support too.
