New Comic!

Harm Reduction! Woo!

I’m into any kind of mental health tool that gives power back to a person. Mental illness can be very disempowering; it feels like you have no control over your thoughts and feelings. Unfortunately, getting treatment for mental illness can also feel like you’re giving up control, as doctors and medications and diagnoses just sort of happen to you, and that’s if you’re able to access mental health services safety and successfully.

I love harm reduction models because they’re basically like ‘hey, that thing you’re doing that you want to do less of? You don’t have to stop right away. Let’s just try to give you a little more control about how that happens, ok? Let’s explore some options’.

Options are always good.

Sansa Appreciation Week » Day One (Favorite quote)
"Drifting snowflakes brushed her face as light as lover’s kisses, and melted on her cheeks. At the center of the garden, beside the statue of the weeping woman that lay broken and half-buried on the ground, she turned her face up to the sky and closed her eyes. She could feel the snow on her lashes, taste it on her lips. It was the taste of Winterfell. The taste of innocence. The taste of dreams.

As a 19-year-old sophomore at Stanford, Elizabeth Holmes decided to transform diagnostic medicine so she dropped out of college and used her tuition money to start her own company, Theranos. Ten years later, Holmes, pictured here holding a micro-vial, is on the cutting edge of medical technology — her new blood testing method allows hundreds of tests to be run using only a few drops of blood. And, Holmes’ methods are cheaper, faster, more accurate, and less invasive than conventional methods which often require a separate vial of blood for every test.

As Holmes told Wired.com earlier this year, “I started this company because I wanted to spend my life changing our health care system. When someone you love gets really sick, most of the time when you find out, it’s too late to be able to do something about it. It’s heartbreaking… We wanted to make actionable health information accessible to people everywhere at the time it matters most. That means two things: being able to detect conditions in time to do something about them and providing access to information that can empower people to improve their lives.”
