After months in development, Little Voice is extremely excited to launch the preorder for our upcoming children’s book The Lighthouse!
The Lighthouse is a story that aims to educate, support, and remind all those affected by mental illness that they are not alone. Through the power of literature and illustration, this open, honest and brave story supports all those who may be suffering in silence by breaking the very stigma that holds them hostage. Developed as a tool by mental health advocates Amanda Bernardo and Samantha Clusiau-Lawlor, The Lighthouse teaches children, and adults alike, to understand, listen and talk about mental health.
The story serves as a symbolic reminder of the support, strength and hope that is represented by the lighthouse, and aims to teach its readers to become a beacon of light in their own communities.
Preorder your copy and be the first to receive The Lighthouse this October in anticipation of our official launch on World Mental Health Day!
World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health.
The Day provides an opportunity for all those working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.
