'Compassionate and hopeful' - Pragya Agarwal, author of Sway: Unravelling Unconscious Bias

'This beautiful curation will be a catalyst to our healing and emancipation' - Seyi Akiwowo, author of How to Stay Safe Online: A Digital Self-Care Toolkit for Developing Resilience and Allyship

A compelling collection of stories, essays, poetry and art that shines a light on the experiences of mental health for people of colour, bringing solace and connection to those with similar stories. A tool for education and advocacy, The Colour of Madness offers a space for those who have been excluded from mainstream health narratives.

For those past and present who were not able to tell their stories.
For those who told their stories but were not heard.
For those who are steeling themselves, waiting for their moment to speak.

A moving tribute to all who have suffered in a prejudiced system, this anthology is both an urgent call for change and a vibrant beacon of hope, compiled by Dr Samara Linton and Dr Rianna Walcott.

'A body of work we should revisit again and again.' - K Bailey Obazee, PRIM
