Depression. Sanctions. Anxiety. Self harm. Back to work. Substance Abuse.

JSA. AA. ESA. FA. PIP. It’s grim out there. It’s grim everywhere.

Sibling love and sibling dependency; Kicked in the Sh*tter is a tale of brother and sister struggling to live with mental health difficulties amidst the labyrinthine wreckage of a decayed welfare state.

This isn’t poverty porn; there’s nothing sexy about despair.
