Children’s Author Harriet Bremner has written a new book named ‘’Use Your Voice’’ in collaboration with Elle Perriam, Founder of Will to Live charity. The book focuses on mental health for rural children, and uses a black dog, Jess the Huntaway to demonstrate how important it is to speak up about how they feel and share their feelings with others. Jess also travelled with Elle Perriam on Will To Live’s ‘’Speak Up Tour’’ which hosted events in local pubs to help farmers to speak up about their mental health. Farm Strong, The Rural Support Trust and the Mental Health Foundation have all supported the release of the book. Mrs Bremner and Mrs Perriam plan to tour through South Island schools with the book and already have three confirmed.
