Young People Write About Mental Illness

Represent Summer 2009The new issue of Represent, a magazine by and for young people in foster care, focuses on mental illness. It makes for some pretty heavy reading—these young writers are incredibly straightforward and honest about their experiences with childhood abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), dissociative identity disorder, and schizophrenia—but it’s a vital source of voices and perspectives that are normally absent from discussions of mental illness.
