Parts Unbound

  • Parts Unbound
  • Narratives of Mental Illness and Health


In this debut print publication from Lime Hawk Literary Arts Collective, eighteen authors share their truths, fears, and triumphs of living and coping with mental illness. With perspectives ranging from patients to parents, children, doctors, and friends, Parts Unbound offers a dynamic addition to the conversation we must have about mental healthcare in order to make progress and heal.


“Parts Unbound invites the reader into struggles with mental illness, but also, importantly, into the complex individual stories in our neuro-diverse world. These eighteen vital essays evoke empathy with their stunning vulnerability, analysis, and gripping narratives.”

-Sonya Huber, Author, Cover Me: A Health Insurance Memoir

“Parts Unbound dramatically and honestly captures the challenges of people fighting and coping with mental illness. It’s a collection of enlightening true stories that will encourage others to share their pain and their struggles to live productive and satisfying lives.”

-Lee Gutkind, Author, Stuck in Time: The Tragedy of Childhood Mental Illness, Editor, Creative Nonfiction.
