Friend of BookTrust Juno Dawson spoke to students in Northern Ireland about her new teen advice guide Mind Your Head.
The transgender author formerly known as James, visited Hazelwood Integrated College, Malone Integrated College, Lagan College and Oakgrove Integrated College to encourage more teenagers to read for fun and talk openly about mental health issues.
During her visit, Juno shared with the young adults a personal story about her anxiety attack at Hay festival; and encouraged the students to look after themselves and their friends.
Her frank and funny new book, written with support from clinical psychologist Dr Olivia Hewitt, covers topics from anxiety and depression to addiction, self-harm and personality disorders, with stories from young people around the world and advice on how to manage mental health issues.
