a gift to help mental well being

written by Anna Bowyer

As part of their "Dedicated to..." series, creative story-tellers and developers of 'The Book of Beasties' have supplied Tŷ Hafan with mental well being resources for life-limited children and their siblings to help encourage emotional expression in families. Our Sibling Support Practitioner, Anna, tells us about the benefits of these fantastic resources that have been gifted to Tŷ Hafan.
