Manuela Mau - MA Show
It is going to tell the story of a young girl who finds herself in a forest full of monsters and is inspired by Japanese mythology. Gradually the girl has to face adventures and challenges that help her to find her way out of the forest, which symbolises depression. The challenges the girl encounters show the reader how to face different mental illnesses, what to do if you are in the situation of being mentally ill and how to help people with mental disorders. In my opinion dealing with depression and other mental illnesses is something children should know about as it is widespread, affects many, and so should not be a taboo subject.
