Publisher's description: Often, people with mental illness are stigmatized, or overlooked. Once you read an issue of Open Minds Quarterly, you'll see what we see: insightful and spirited people with stories to share. Our magazine opens minds and opens hearts through the voices of writers worldwide who have survived depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and other mental illnesses. In each quarterly issue you’ll see how others are expressing their experience with illness, in:
- PERSONAL STORIES of struggle and recovery from depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, and more
- POETRY showcasing the talent and insight of mental health consumers, on topics of all kinds
- ESSAYS and opinions on mental healthcare
- BOOK REVIEWS, consumer artwork, and more!
We also host special issues and our annual poetry contest. Open Minds Quarterly is now offering digital subscriptions and single copies through KOBO.
Says one of our readers, "It is good to get reminders that there is a league of people who understand."
Our contributors will impress you with how they have turned their difficult life experience into literary expression. From new writers to experienced ones, Open Minds gives you the voice of today’s mental health consumer. It's like a support group in your mailbox.
Be moved. Be inspired. Open your mind.
