Stand Up, Stand Out is an Australian children\u2019s picture book written by Joel Pilgrim & illustrated by Mitch Revs, which explores mental health and well-being for kids. This book aims to entertain, but also engage children from a young age on the importance of having conversations about mental health. It provides support for parents and teachers as a guide on how to address mental health in a fun and interesting way.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe creative concept of Stand Up, Stand Out is based on the true story of how Grant Trebilco founded OneWave, a non-profit surf community that raises awareness for mental health. $5.00 from every book sold goes towards providing surf therapy programs for people experiencing mental health issues, provided by the Waves of Wellness Foundation. WOW is an Australian for-purpose mental health & surf therapy charity, changing lives through innovative mental health & wellness programs. Author Joel Pilgrim also happens to be the founder and executive director of said foundation.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nStand Up, Stand Out launches March 3rd, 2017.
