The treatment, description, definition and naming of mental health problems are culturally and historically shifting. They affect everyone part-taking in any given culture - and have direct impact on the embodied and social lives of everyone affected by them. Thereby it is important to examine and analyse the impact and affect of the cultural representations, practices and processes involved in naming and care. According to many pathographies, stories of illness, however, experiences of mental suffering escape language, whereby it is necessary to develop creative methodologies to convey these experiences.
