Nina Packebush: Girls Like Me


What’s it like to be a teenager in a psychiatric hospital? What is it like to be a queer pregnant teenager? Is it true that friends do make the best medicine? Nina Packebush explores these questions and more in her groundbreaking debut young adult novel: Girls Like Me.


Nina is a queer-identified, grown-up teen mom, writer, zine maker, and mental health advocate. Besides being an author and advocate, Nina is the producer of Madness Radio and here is interviewed by host Will Hall.
