Abstract

The Cursed Child and the Trickster Fox (A Novel) is a fictional representation of the stigma of mental illness in the black community. The story focuses on Frankie Marchand, a woman child with bipolar disorder with psychotic features. Frankie has lost her mother, father, and twin brother in a tragic accident, which she is the sole survivor of, and is still coming to grips with what is now her new reality. Unfortunately, this new reality is without immediate familial support or mental stability because family and the black community view mental illness exclusively as a "white people" issue.
