Unseen Stories’ charts the remarkable journey to recovery of nine young adults aged between 18 and 30 years old who attended our young adults group Making Headway during 2017. Through their artwork they explored personal experiences that had thrown them off course and unhelpful life patterns and that were holding their dreams hostage.
When you read their stories you can clearly ‘see what they mean’ through the rawness and turmoil expressed in their artwork and personal accounts that were written during 1:1 mentoring sessions.
The book was launched on 10th October 2019 to mark World Mental Health Day and we wanted to highlight that a life is lost to suicide every 40 seconds. Unseen Stories will instill people who may have reached a very low point in their lives with hope and will encourage them to reach out for help.
Unseen Stories is available on Amazon for £14.50. The small profit of £4.31 per book will be reinvested in art materials for the four weekly groups we run.
