In her memoir, An Unquiet Mind, Kay Redfield Jamison explores mood and madness, the terror and turmoil of living with mental illness. We are looking for work from the perspective of those with unquiet minds, their caregivers, loved ones, and professional healers – work that encompasses the experience of living and wrestling with all manner of inner demons, treatment, relationships, social stigma and more.
