vitamins minerals and mental health2-1.jpg

Vitamins, Minerals and Mental Health: the C.P.A.B.'s Discussion of Wellness. This is an extensive, well-researched zine that talks about how vitamins and minerals can affect mental health. For each of the vitamins and minerals described, it lists signs of deficiency, signs of toxicity, and food sources. It also describes the function of the vitamins in minerals in the healthy functioning of human bodies. This is a kickass zine.

Prescription for Change: Community Response to Substance Use

prescription for change2-1.jpg

This is an excellent zine talking about addiction, from all sorts of perspectives. It goes into the author's own experiences with addiction and kicking a heroin habit and most importantly talks about how communities can respond to someone struggling with addiction in a way that is helpful and non-judgmental. (Along the way, it offers radical/anarchist critiques of AA and 12-step programs, the moralism often attached to other people's substance use, and lots of other things.) Chock fulla insights and one fine zine.

surviving_psychosis-imposed-1.jpg

This zine contains a series of suggestions to help people who undergo psychosis deal with the experience, and hopefully prevent the need of hospitalization. It is meant specifically to help with the period of psychosis itself, in it's earlier and more manageable stages, though some of the advice will be applicable to maintaining positive mental health at every level. These are ultimately suggestions, based on my own experiences of psychosis and resulting reality shifts, but I hope the advice rings true across the spectrum of altered mental states.  read more »
