“He Shoots! He Scores!” is a children’s book that addresses the topic of child and youth mental health challenges, with a particular focus on bipolar disorder. The story follows a young boy named Fish who turns 13 and discovers that he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. While Fish seeks and receives help for his condition, he soon realises that his new high-school community is not as understanding and supportive as his previous experiences.
In his quest for understanding and acceptance, Fish reaches out to a character named Iris the Dragon for assistance. Through this connection, Fish becomes aware of the negative stereotypes and attitudes surrounding mental illness that still exist in society. The book explores the concept of self-stigma and family stigma, shedding light on the challenges faced by individuals with mental health conditions and the importance of societal understanding and support.
