Product description

Review

"Strikingly illustrates (and demystifies) disorders such as schizophrenia, dementia, and bipolarism."--"Elle Magazine

"

"Straight-forward, engaging, and possessed with both great clarity and a world of sympathy for its subject matter, Cunningham's series of essays about those suffering from mental illness and the way they're treated by modern society should sit comfortably on shelves next to works like Marjane Satrapi's "Persepolis" in terms of its easy accessibility to a wide range of readers and the humane voice that emanates from its pages. Its final chapter, in which Cunningham details his personal troubles in the course of making the work, is as affecting as any comics short story in recent memory. One imagines "Psychiatric Tales" defining, at least in significant fashion, the Yorkshire, England-based artist's career for years to come."--"The Comics Reporter"

"Heartfelt...With "Psychiatric Tales, "Cunningham has crafted his own effective way to help both himself and other sufferers of mental illness."--NPR.org

"

"""Psychiatric Tales "does a great job explaining this, and it would likely serve as an excellent tool for anyone who is coping with mental illness in their own family." --GraphicNovelReporter.com"

"

"This gem of a book examines a wide range of mental-health issues as well as Cunningham's personal experiences with mental illness...The concise and poignant tales, while self-contained, build upon each other and create a framework that allows Cunningham to effectively question the stigmas associated with mental illness. His inviting cartooning style mixes contrasting backgrounds with simple line drawings that leave a stark impression. The overall message--that mental illness is biochemical in origin and deserves the same kind of sympathy as other serious illnesses--is one that deserves to be heard.""--Booklist

"

"Speaking with compassion and clarity, Cunningham tells of his own struggles with severe anxiety and depression. creating a valuable tool for both those within the mental health profession and casual readers who may know someone with mental illness." --"Publishers Weekly

"

"An illustrated primer on mental illness that builds to personal revelation ... The illustrations are compelling throughout."--"Kirkus Reviews

"
