dc.description.abstractThis creative writing thesis explores the theory and practice of developing a reparative poetics of youth mental health in graphic medicine. It pertains to the design and development of a series of comics for use in a suite of online youth mental health websites, developed in collaboration with an interdisciplinary research team at Orygen Youth Health. The structure of the thesis moves iteratively between critical readings of published comics that present lived experience of youth mental illness and wellbeing, and chapters that tell a narrative of the comics we produced and the stylistic choices we made in terms of representation, characterisation, setting, story and metaphor. Despite the highly collaborative, interdisciplinary context of the research, the thesis situates itself firmly within the discipline of creative writing.
