Since we were both 17, my friend Scout has been navigating severe and intense mental illness diagnoses. The experiences she has had in her own body, and in the inpatient and outpatient psych wards for so many years have been harrowing and terrifying. She has recently begun to share her writings from these times, painting a scarily realistic picture of a very unspoken reality. And I’m very proud of her honesty, she’s incredibly creative and a great writer too.
