TRIGGER WARNING: Discussion of mental health issues
Hey, y’all! I’m coming back to Tumblr after a hiatus to ask your help.
I’m currently studying Library & Information Science, and as a class project I’m developing—with two other great folks—a collection report on comics that cover issues of mental health and trauma.
What are your favorite comics in these areas? We’re looking for (mostly autobiographical) comics that address these topics:
- any form of mental illness
- institutional oppression
- sexual assault
- etc — (your ideas welcome)
This collection is aiming to be a resource for community members to process and access/learn about other folks’ experiences.
Also: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Please feel free to reblog!
It warns me that the mind in which I live belongs to someone who knows too much of life and how it ends most often without warning. How it deals us blows, dares us to dream when in fact there is no use. Manages to leave out that there is a plan etched in the planet for me. This mind knows."
There’s well over a foot of snow on the ground and I don’t plan to leave the house anytime soon. Tonight is all about loading up my e-reader with new things to read. (Well, that and eating too many post-holiday leftover snacks!)
