From Adam Przytula, mental health advocate and founder of Armed for Life, The Road to Resilience is a down-to-earth guide for getting through the challenges that young people face daily.

Written in a down-to-earth and accessible style, the book is designed to help teens with struggles they encounter every day, including those being faced for the first time by this generation. Packed full of practical exercises, life-affirming lessons and relatable stories drawn from the author's own life, this book will help you to become the person you want to be.
