For anyone who struggles with mental illness, of any kind really, or anyone caring for someone dealing with mental illness this graphic novel is amazing. The graphic novel is specifically about the author’s struggle with bipolar disorder, but honestly, I think the struggle she goes through is applicable to anyone dealing with mental illness. Learning to accept and cope with a diagnosed mental illness is a long and difficult journey, but it isn’t “the end.” There is help out there and there are people who care.
