I'm so excited to see EachOther's next creative exploration take flight. We're always looking to expand the ways in which we share human rights issues with our audience and I think the comic strip will blow them away. It's a beautiful creation and it tells the story of young people and their mental health rights in an engaging wayHannah Shewan Stevens - Interim Editor
