Some themes this issue approaches are: the intersection of mental health and progressive sight loss, the struggle for sobriety, mental illness, autism and police brutality, the intersection of classism and mental health treatment, the whitewashing of young women’s mental health, thoughts on how experiences of racism shapes trichotillomania, Asian American mental health education, Canadian mental health treatment of schizophrenia, the difficult side effects of mental health medication, surviving depression and the death of one’s parents, struggles with dermatillomania, working class girlhood, Fiona Apple….and much more.

We do approach themes that can be triggering. For these we have decided to add a dark red banner on the top corner of the page so you can skip those if you are not up for them on any given day. This issue’s potentially triggering themes are: police brutality, sexual abuse, disordered eating, rape, childhood sexual abuse, internalised victim blaming, misogyny, dermatillomania, sexual assault, internalised racism, self-harm, anorexia, suicidal ideation, trichotillomania, suicide.

Is there a theme you’d like to see labeled? Please let us know!
