When Life Sucks
A first-aid manual for supporting your teen's mental health, by psychiatrist and comedian Dr Jo Prendergast
When Life Sucks is an essential guide to supporting your teen's mental health. As a parent and psychiatrist, Dr Jo knows how hard it can be - especially if a teen communicates only in eye rolls and grunts!
Covering everything from anxiety, depression, trauma and eating difficulties, to understanding neurodivergence and gender identity, this book is a first-aid manual for some of life's toughest challenges. It's not easy being a parent in a world of TikTok and bubblegum-flavoured vapes, but When Life Sucks gives you the practical tools to help make your life a little lighter and to support your teen towards a healthy headspace.
