Where has the joy gone?

For Novacarta children and adolescents are a priority and that’s why we had the idea of ​​the project: Where has the joy gone? We are going to create an adaptable book that will explain depression from a parent (father or mother) to a child and / or teenager.

Depression is a very widespread disease but especially recurrent in our societies; a person will suffer, at some point in his/her life, from one or more depressive episodes. Depression is among you and all of us must learn to live with it.
