NOUS makes the issue depression and mental health gain centre stage in our society and offers its reader a subtle but emotional approach to the subject.

The magazine will be published quarterly and with every issue orbitting a new aspect of life with mental illness. Writers and visual creatives will work with the given topic - for the first issue it was insomnia. nous insomnia edition will feature over 50 contributors mostly from the UK but also from Ireland, Spain, Russia, France, Germany, the U.S. and Canada.

NOUS will be distributed for free. You will find the magazine in bars, cafes and other places we link with good memories of gathering and company. Places where everyone can be a philosopher, places where we will find ourselves talking about our worries and hopes to our friends but also to total strangers.

To keep our production costs low and because it looks just beautiful we decided on printing with a risograph. This means we can deal with a comparably low budget of 500 Euro. These will basically be spent on paper.
