Can stories help young people in the 21st centurydevelop resilience?
Often people naively believe that young people today have it easy because of theprosperity of our country and the various technologies available. However thehigh rates of depression, suicide, bullying, self-harm and eating disorders inyoung people suggest that this is not true. In an attempt to counter this risingtrend in young adults, Head Space (the National Youth Mental HealthFoundation) has asked our class to put together a collection of short storiesexploring the theme resilience. This collection of stories will be used aseducational and motivational material for young people having a tough time inlife.The completed collection of stories will be published as an eBook to bedownloaded from our class blog and will be presented to an audience of distinguished guests at a Book Launch on Wednesday evening, Week 9.
