Stand up Stand out Book
Stand Up, Stand Out is a children’s picture book written by Joel Pilgrim & illustrated by Mitch Revs, which explores mental health and well-being for kids.
This book aims to start important conversations about mental health with children from a young age. It provides support for parents and teachers on how to address mental health in a fun and engaging way.
This book is a creative concept based on the true story of how Grant Trebilco founded OneWave, a non-profit surf community raising awareness for mental health. OneWave holds Fluro Friday awareness events weekly at various locations around Australia, and has reached over 100 beaches globally.
$5.00 from every book sold goes towards providing surf therapy programs for people experiencing mental health issues, provided by the Waves of wellness Foundation (WOW). WOW is an Australian for-purpose mental health & surf therapy charity, changing lives through innovative mental health & wellness programs.
