(Cover image: Nathalie Sheppard)

Title: The Deciders.

Artist's caption: The settler government of Canada, which arbitrarily decides who lives in and who leaves Canada is attempting to expel Deepan Budlakoti from Turtle Island, where a community of supporters is rightly attempting to keep him grounded in his country of birth.

Editors' Note: The first article in this issue – Daiva Stasiulis' "The Extraordinary Statelessness of Deepan Budlakoti" – provides an analysis of Budlakoti's citizenship situation.

Of Brass and Twine (Michelle Barron)

Vol 10, No 1 (2016): Mental Health and Distress as a Social Justice Issue

Guest Editors: Heidi Rimke, Mandi Gray and Lacey Croft

(Cover image: "Of Brass and Twine," by Michelle Barron)

Using a clay medium with acrylic paint and graphic editing, this work aims to address the way in which many mental health initiatives fail individuals suffering from anxiety and depression. In the image, a figure, bound in rope, sits on the ground shrouded in a thick, blue, impenetrable fog with a looming stranger who is offering a key. The key is a symbol that embodies the promise of wellness through self-discipline guided by mental health initiatives. This gesture however is often misguided. A key cannot unlock rope; it does not account for the origins or social production of the threads, how the individual became bound, or the spaces they are tied to. The image emphasizes that there is often an incompatibility between mental health initiatives and mental illnesses.
