Following the international release of her New York Times bestseller First, We Make the Beast Beautiful: a new conversation about anxiety, former journalist and commentator Sarah Wilson was flooded with questions about the “childhood anxiety epidemic”. While the community has leveled the blame at technology and social media, Wilson has taken a deeper dive in her soon-to-be-published book and has found, more worryingly, we have a resilience epidemic.

Sarah Wilson is a New York Times and Amazon #1 bestselling author, entrepreneur and philanthropist. She’s the founder of IQuitSugar.com, whose 8-Week Program has been completed by 1.5 million people in 133 countries.
