Apples and Snakes presents The No Panic Book of Not Panicking as part of the DeStress Festival @ Attenborough Arts Centre. Join us for an afternoon of stories, poems and discussion. The book shares personal experiences of struggling with panic and anxiety, practical and creative strategies for ways of coping, along with poems and stories about attitudes towards mental health. No Panic hopes the book will bring relief to those who are suffering with panic and anxiety, help families and carers, inform the wider public, and eradicate shame and stigma linked to the condition.

The book is full of testimonies that even in the darkest moments hope can be found, and is full of helpful ideas about how to face fears and live a braver life.

Sally Pomme Clayton will introduce the event and members of No Panic will read poems and stories from the book, and share their experiences of writing the book. Richy K Chandler will talk about the illustrations he created for the book. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the presentation and readings.

The No Panic Book of Not Panicking was funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund
