Between 15% and 25% of Canadians experience at least one mental health problem or illness before they turn 19 years of age. These youth have a higher likelihood than others of facing a second one later in their lifetime (Source: Martha Butler & Melissa Pang, Current Issues in Mental Health in Canada: Child and Youth Mental Health, Publication no. 2014-13, Parliamentary Information and Research Service, Library of Parliament, Ottawa, 5 March 2014).

Here’s my first story, the one of my younger self, struggling to define out loud the pain I felt! Often behaviours correlated to a troubled child- one who was defiant amongst everything else- but if anyone was to listen- or reach into me, they could of seen my struggle was happening internally! This book is perfect for the young adult learning to navigate imperfectly perfect hard lessons!

This book was written by me, a nurse practitioner, who has seen the detrimental effects of suffering! Mental and physical health require action after action, led into by you. We all must shift past our pain and find resilience again and this is hidden amongst everything! Smile, harmonize, Inhale, focus and Try, and you will discover a beautiful life!
