On Wednesday, October 4th, 2023, Christi Furnas held a a reading of her new mini-comic with our friends at Soo. Crazy Fox Tales: Therapy Shopping, a 44 page comic that explores the frustrations of finding help from mental health professionals when it is needed. This is a light hearted look at what the author has experienced while navigating the healthcare system and living with a chronic mental illness. There are a couple of swear words. FYI.
