Mental Health Awareness Week: Welcome & Schedule!

Hi everyone! I was dabbling with the idea of doing a Mental Health Awareness week for a little while but wasn’t sure how to conduct it but after weeks of planning and brain-storming, we finally made it so welcome to Mental Health Awareness week on Jenny in Neverland!

For the next week, we’re going to have lots of posts – one from myself and the rest from some amazing bloggers and authors, all of which are covering different topics regarding mental health.
