The Inside Our Minds Zine

Yinz Mad? Radical Mental Health in Pittsburgh is a serial zine publication by Inside Our Minds. Storytelling has always been an important part of the Inside Our Minds community: an outlet to share our experiences, a method of activism, a space for community-building, and a way to ensure our voices are heard. Yinz Mad? is a peer-controlled publication, run for people with lived experience by people with lived experience, centering our voices, our stories, and our expertise.

Issue Two: Choice / Options / Pandemic

Issue Two of Yinz Mad? Radical Mental Health in Pittsburgh was released on Friday, May 22, 2020. The original theme for this issue was solely “Options / Choice,” but after the arrival of COVID-19, we decided to open up the conversation to include reflections on mental health during a pandemic. Enjoy this wide array of stories, photographs, and artwork on choice / options (or a lack thereof), pandemic tales, and our collective experience of it all.

As of January 2021, we now have a limited print of Issue Two! If you are interested in a print version of this zine, please fill out this form. We also have a PDF version of the zine available below.
