Do What You Want is a zine about mental health, with all profits going to charities and not-for-profit organisations.
With nearly 150 pages of interview, essay and illustration, Do What You Want is a celebration of all aspects of mental wellbeing, from the provision of accessible mental health care to the power of self-belief. With a strong intersectional focus, this is a zine about mental health for all people, in all walks of life. We believe that mental health care and support should be a right for all.
Among our contributors are writers from the Guardian, New York Times, New York Magazine, Rookie, Pitchfork and ELLE. Our highlights include:
Why Should I Go to Therapy? by Ask Polly's Heather Havrilesky || An interview about OCD with writer and actress Mara Wilson || Food for Thought: Diana Henry, Tejal Rao, Meera Sodha, Ruby Tandoh and more share their recipes for life || The Many Faces of Eating Disorders: interviews with survivors || Eleanor Morgan writing about Plastic Minds || The Cost of Care: an interview with Sally Burke, from Channel 4’s acclaimed documentary series Kids on the Edge
Other features include a personal essay about mental wellbeing as a Somali refugee woman; an article about seeking treatment as a non binary person; a look at being mentally ill and on benefits; a portrait of social anxiety; a comic about mental health and compulsive spending, and much more.
