From Our Readers
"As someone with a couple of debilitating mental illnesses, it is always both a comfort and an encouragement to read the work of other writers and patients who go through similar things. I learn from their experiences and insights, and also take heart in knowing that I'm not the only one fighting this. "
"After all these years I have yet to find another quality mental health zine like Open Minds Quarterly"
