Zine Review: Mo'Bows

Mo’ Bows
by Dirk Keaton 

There is a massive multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry that manufacture drugs (often not even knowing how or if they work) and a cadre of doctors who will prescribe them like candy then walk away to let you pick up the pieces. For anyone who wrestles with a mental health or behavioral issue, or who knows people who do (this is all of us), Mo’Bows is an essential read. In clear, concise language, Dirk walks the reader through the minefields of deciding whether or not to use psychotropic drugs as part of the recovery / healing process. Although this zine chronicles his personal story of dealing with OCD and his personal experiences with medications, the information and perspectives shared are relevant on many levels. Dirk’s writing is insightful, thought provoking, and above all encourages the reader to make choices that work for them. Highly recommended.
