Title

My Mind has a Mind of Its Own: A zine about mental health inequalities

Date

Fall 2017

Description

"With rising stress, anxiety & depression on college campuses, we believe its important to discuss & prioritize mental health. We also believe in understanding mental health from an intersectional approach which considers the relationships between mental illness & treatment with social inequalities like racism, sexism, classism & others. In this zine, we examine mental health & its disparities across 4 categories: sexuality, gender, class, & race. We hope this zine helps facilitate conversation & destigmatize mental illness by highlighting the facts and revealing the myths. At the end of the zine, we've included a list of resources for anyone in need of support or other information." -From the zinesters
Created in Dr. Saher Selod's Fall 2017 Sociology of Inequalities (SOC 249) course.
