There's a Happy Moon in my Side

“One morning, when Lucy woke up, there was a Happy Moon in her side.”

This begins Lucy’s journey with her Happy Moon. She discovers the moon is a best-friend-kind-of-moon who helps her in fun times and the difficult times. The Happy Moon understands what she is feeling, helps her to see things differently, and suggests useful actions to take.

Written by Mind Health founder, coach and counsellor, Richard Black, and beautifully illustrated by Tepene Marsden, you will learn how to discover your very own Happy Moon.

Also included are tools for parents, carers, and educators to help your child’s Happy Moon shine, and grow their wellbeing and resilience.
