Very few publications dare to venture into a space otherwise considered taboo, and even fewer manage to pull it off as brilliantly as Anxy Magazine. Filled with personal narratives focusing on mental health with real perspectives, intimate stories, and art – the magazine is an attempt at normalizing conversations surrounding mental health issues outside the medical arena and in the creative space.

This US based, bi-annual magazine stems from founder Indhira Rojas’ personal struggles, with its inception issue focusing on "Anger". This issue of the magazine blends together the biology and psychology of anger from various perspectives. Anxy isn’t a self-help manual and doesn’t tell you how to “fix” an issue, rather it helps explore our inner worlds—our personal struggles, and the fears that fool us into believing that the rest of the world is normal and we’re not.

Each issue of this magazine will use a central theme— “loneliness” or “boundaries”— to build an original, insightful, and creative perspective through interviews, personal essays, reported features, visual stories, cartoons and recommendations for what to read, watch and download to round out the conversation.

Next up is The Workaholism Issue and we will keep you posted on when it is out. For now, we sure are Anxy. Are you?
