WHAT?

80 page square (8.5 x8.5) soft cover book filled with illustrations & typography!

Why?

This has been a passion project for quite some time. Growing up, mental health resources weren't readily available and coming from a strong hispanic community, mental health was something we just didn't talk about. 

The discrimination and social stigmas attached to mental health can make it hard for People with mental conditions seek help and recover .  I wanted to create this book to change that and to encourage people to start a conversation that matters

How?

Written as a simple guidebook for anyone interested in learning about Mental Health, ‘The Little Book of Disorders’ highlights eight of the most common mental disorders. It offers support for parents, children, friends and family and even gives advice for helping others. 

Full of original illustrations and typography, I paired each section with pop culture references like Lord of The Rings & Batman to make this topic fun & easy to understand for all. Please show your support and

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter is important because we really want to make this book without the help of a publisher. We found printers that can get everything made but printers are not cost effective unless we can order in bulk. The Numbers have been crunched and we’ve set a $3,000 goal that makes everything achievable. Fortunately, the book and all of the art for the rewards is complete. As soon as this Kickstarer is funded, I can set an order so I can get everything out to you as soon as possible.
