About the book

An invaluable tool to get boys talking

Talking costs nothing but it can change your life for the better

Growing up is hard work! You’re expected to ace your exams, be responsible, keep up a hectic social life both online and IRL, make big decisions about your future, and somehow stay happy at the same time. But, as we know, no one feels OK all the time, so what happens then? What happens when we don’t feel great and don’t know what to do about it or where to get help?

Let’s Talk provides the tools to get boys talking about how they’re feeling. Within this insightful guide you will find activities to figure out what help you might need, advice on where to get help, and case studies to show how others have voiced their feelings and found help.

Learn to:

  • Articulate how you’re feeling
  • Build a support network
  • Create your own well-being toolkit
  • Bounce back from low mood
  • Help others who might be struggling

Remember: if you’re not feeling OK, you have the power to do something about it and this book will show you how.
