Paperback:Stuff that sucks, accepting what you can't change and committing to what you can:2015 Paperback
Author: Sedley, Ben
Year: 2015
Language: English
Interest category: Living & learning
Media class: Paperback
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Robinson
Resource type: Physical
Note: Each of us has thoughts that are painful at times; sometimes the pain is sadness, sometimes worry or anger or shame or grief or some feeling that you don't even have words for. If you are a young person struggling with your emotions, you do not want to be told that 'everyone feels like that' or that 'you will grow out of it'. You want to feel that your emotions are valid and that the person offering help truly understands how painful life can feel at times. With a strong emphasis on validation and compassion, 'Stuff That Sucks' encourages you to accept your emotions rather than struggling against them. It also shows how to reconnect with what is really important to you, giving you the tools to help clarify your personal values and take steps towards living a life where those values can guide you in your day-to-day behaviour.

Year: 2017
Language: English
Interest category: Health & welfare
Media class: Paperback
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Wren & Rook
Resource type: Physical
Note: What I hope you take away from this book: good Mexican food deserves to go viral; good underwear never features the word 'string'; good mental health is the single most important thing you need to live a happy life. I don't have a psychology degree - in fact, I once tried to throw a typewriter at a child psychiatrist (this was in the days before MacBook pros) - but I do have experience, understanding and coping mechanisms to help you get your sh*t together. From anxiety and eating disorders to OCD and psychosis, I want to help break down taboos surrounding mental health conditions (which directly affect 1 in 4 of us each year - you are NOT alone) and help you come out the other side happier and healthier.

Language: English
Interest category: Young adult novels
Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Orion
Resource type: Physical
Note: Leigh Chen Sanders is sixteen when her mother commits suicide, leaving only a scribbled note: 'I want you to remember'. Leigh doesn't know what it means, but when a red bird appears with a message, she finds herself travelling to Taiwan to meet her maternal grandparents for the first time. Leigh is far away from home and far away from Axel, her best friend, who she stupidly kissed on the night her mother died - leaving her with a swell of guilt that she wasn't home, and a heavy heart, thinking she may have destroyed the one good thing left in her life. Overwhelmed by grief and the burden of fulfilling her mother's last wish, Leigh retreats into her art and into her memories, where colours collide and the rules of reality are broken. The only thing Leigh is certain about is that she must find out the truth. Teenagers

Media class: Paperback
Publisher: The Liffey Press
Resource type: Physical
Note: 'Most of the time, I just don't feel I'm good enough'. This is the most common statement that Gary Cunningham has heard whilst speaking in schools and YouthReach groups around Ireland. A former inmate of Mountjoy Prison and the author of 'Joys of Joy' and 'Life After Joy', Gary has had the opportunity to deliver his unique message to hundreds of young people across the nation. But it was in one particular school, when Gary was informed of the recent tragic suicide of a twelve-year-old student, that he realised there was a crisis at hand and that he had to do something about it. Inside these pages are stories sadly based on true events. Each deals with topics and situations that came up whilst speaking to students: bullying, peer pressure, dealing with grief, consent, social media and, shockingly, suicide. General adult
