This blog is intended to act as a sister blog to the zine’s published by ‘Hunger Zines’. A couple of years ago, after being diagnosed with an eating disorder, I began to look for socialist literature on mental health and found that there was very little. I saw that there was growing issues with mental distress and yet little accessible literature that actually tackled the route causes or assessed mental health within the framework of anti-capitalism. I saw liberal campaigns trying to tackle media manipulation without ever assessing what would drive companies to destroy our relationships with our bodies, I found few discussions of what austerity is doing to our wellbeing and I witnessed little conversation that expressed the need for truly liberated therapies. I hope these writings can contribute in some way to starting or carrying these conversations.
