Some themes Issue Two has approached are: mental health within women’s prisons, coping with emotional impermanence, the intersection between mental health and physical disability, the stigma of mental health in Muslim society, dealing with being in a mental health ward whilst still in high school… 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: transmisogyny, suicide, ableism, anxiety, self harm, rape, alcoholism, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, sexual assault.

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

Open Conversation

This issue’s conversation between the Doll Hospital team deals with the relationship between mental health and physical disability and chronic illness, addressing how often physical disability and chronic illness is disregarded, co-opted and misunderstood in mainstream conversations on mental health .
