All over the world millions of people wrestle with a wide range of mental health issues – depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, and more. Their voices should be heard. Through the Labyrinths of the Mind features 11 comics about mental health by a diverse selection of comic creators from British Columbia and beyond. Their comics range from starkly honest memoirs to symbolic slice-of-life fiction and even fairy tales, but whatever the genre, all the stories speak truth to their creator’s struggles.
As well as being the instigator and co-editor of Through the Labyrinths of the Mind, I also wrote “The Sorrow of Sir Geraint, Son of Erbin,” a retelling of a Welsh folktale in which one of King Arthur’s knights wrestles with his own depression. This comic is illustrated by Devin Rosychuk.
