Headcase is a great book to get you through these weird and surreal times! Library Journal gave the anthology a fabulous ⭐️’d review: “Few books can make the claim of being unique, but this is one of them . . . the editors intend to start a conversation among LGBTQ people and the therapy community about topics that are usually hidden or ignored. In this goal, they succeed admirably . . . This terrific and essential work will benefit all readers.”
Thanks so much for your support

We got a great review in the February 2020 edition of the Journal of Homosexuality:
(2020) Headcase: LGBTQ Writers and Artists on Mental Health and Wellness, Journal of Homosexuality,
Victoria Brownworth penned a great review of “Headcase” in Philly Gay News this week.
We’ve had a few nice pieces published about Headcase and/or quoting us (the editors) recently. Curve (Fall 2019) is available in hard copy or a digital subscription while Sinister Wisdom (Summer 2019) is a hard copy-only publication. You can read Victoria Brownworth’s three-part series about LGBT mental health in the Philadelphia Gay News online.
Headcase was one of several featured books at #APM19 (Council on Social Work Education’s Annual Program Meeting) in Denver. Our editor, Dana Bliss, and marketing whiz, Sarah Butcher, are pictured here.
“Stephanie Schroder and Teresa Theophano present an authentic and inspiring collection of personal stories that are at the core of what mental health and wellness is comprised of on many levels within the LGBTQ community. Readers will not have seen a book like this. It is the first of its kind to have the intersection between multiple identities and present mental health conflicts for both providers and clients.
Headcase: LGBTQ Writers and Artists on Mental Health and Wellness is a well-edited book featuring an array of authors who speak candidly about their experience on mental health, wellness, and identity.” Read the full review.
