Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Panic Attacks. Self-Mutilation. Anxiety. Four mental health obstacles and one teen who survived - Sophie Riegel.
From middle school through high school, Sophie struggled every single day. She was confused about her horrific thoughts, bullied by her peers for her "strange" behaviors, and felt ashamed of herself. But yet, she persisted. Through years of therapy, medication, the support of her family, and finding her inner strength to fight anxiety, Sophie found hope and happiness. In this groundbreaking book, written for teens by a teen, Sophie paints a vivid image of the reality of living with anxiety but also gives the readers tips, tools, and techniques for managing their struggles. Sophie's honesty and humor shine through on every page, inspiring teens (and those who love them) to take charge of their mental health - and their lives. Sophie offers practical advice to teens, parents, and professionals on how to talk about anxiety and mental health, how NOT to talk about it, when to ask for help, and so much more.
