The newly announced book series offered by Effective Fulfillment, LLC. addresses a growing need to help young people understand their mental health. Numerous studies have noted a rising number of teenage depression and suicide due to social pressures brought by social media, cyberbullying, and the lack of connectedness caused by the pandemic.
Experts suggest that unless otherwise informed, kids may not understand what they are feeling and not seek appropriate assistance. Further, children suffering from depression or anxiety may feel ashamed of their feelings as a sign of “weakness” or not being “accepted” by their families.
The “ABCs of Mental Health” explores different psychiatric disorders and is written in a way that the young can easily understand. Each volume features multicultural characters to promote inclusion and encourage children from all ethnicities to understand that mental illness can affect anyone. The series also discusses various types of interventions to promote education on medication, talk therapy, and other alternative treatments.
Kparyea says that her book includes other items to help normalize mental health disorders in kids, such as affirmation magnets, crisis plan bookmarks, a daily routine checklist, a weekly task list poster, coping skills, emergency flashcards, and stress balls, among others. The whole set can be purchased at https://bcbhaz.org
The book series is written for children aged six to 12, but can also be a useful resource for anyone interested in learning more about mental health.
