In October, our Messages of Hope programs feature finding peace through depression and anxiety. With more and more young people experiencing mental health issues associated with the pressures of life, how can we best support them? As parents and significant adults in a young person’s life, how can we be helpful when we are facing our own challenges? Lutheran Media and Messages of Hope offer a variety of videos, podcasts and booklets to offer hope to cope with life’s challenges. For more, go to messagesofhope.org.au
