Our specific aim is to raise the awareness of women suffering with suicidal . thoughts/ideations or mental health problems, which could lead to suicide.
In full support of existing campaigns that are targeted specifically at men we wish to create a new forum or an output that is tailored to support women, as a means of parity. The need to raise awareness and eliminate stigma is well-founded.
What is a zine, why create one?
A zine is a physical (and sometimes digital) self-published/produced/crafted/glued/stuck/mishmash/collaged form of a magazine. The reason that we’d like to create a zine is so that we can be creative, collaborative and create a high number of copies at low cost.
