Functionally ill: adventures with mental health

After being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, Laura-Marie Taylor decided to start a zine in 2007 that documented her experiences: Functionally ill: adventures with mental health. Information and Laura-Marie’s testimony about the zine can be found in this “Mad Pride” article in Broken Pencil.

We have issue 5 of the zine in our collection: Library Catalogue.

Black and white "Functionally ill" zine cover on white paper with printed title and hand drawn abstract illustration.

Laura-Marie has a personal blog where she talks about Functionally ill and her other zines [accessed 20/5/2020].
