by URevolution

Are you ready to f#ck the stigma?


Revolutionary Writer, Jes, calls the bipolar part of her brain an "asshole". What's your brain like?

Then get writing/drawing/filming etc. Our next special focus issue is on mental health, and we are ready to get uncomfortable. Don’t hold back. Give us all the awkward details, like:

  • What kinds of awkward conversations does your mental illness cause you to have, or avoid?
  • What do you wish you could really tell people about your condition?
  • What are some of the myths about mental illness you want to kill, lay to rest, and hold the memorial for?
  • How can friends, parents, partners, doctors, or bosses be supportive for people living with mental illness?
  • Why do you think it’s so d#amn hard to talk about mental illness? How can we change that?

Get creative! We’re sending a special call to cartoonists and illustrators.
