Some themes this issue approaches are: experiences with OCPD, the trauma of black girlhood, young men’s mental health in prison spaces, unlearning the shame of crystal meth use, representations of mental health in Bollywood cinema, pregnancy and mental health treatment, coping with a phobia of sleep, toxic parents, psychosis and delusions of grandeur, navigating the intersections of Islamphobia and black girlhood, the stigma of schizophrenia, Buffy the Vampire Slayer….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: disordered eating, incest, child abuse, suicide, trichotillomania/hair pulling, anti-black racism, misogynoir, anxiety, panic attacks, rape.
Is there a theme you’d like to see labeled? Please let us know!
Dina Fiasconaro – on her documentary ‘Moms and Meds’
Ambivalently Yours – on emotions, contradictions and the colour pink
Sara Lautman – on drawing, doubt, Peanuts, and images of trichotillomania
This issue’s conversation between editors and contributors discusses what mental health experiences are seen as too stigmatised to talk about openly.
