This is a 4 frame strip cartoon entitled Criptarts - Episode 12. The first two frames have all seven characters spread across them in a group. Wheelchair user Liz is saying to the others: Hi guys - we've got some response from the community about the proposed unit ... " Tom asks: "Do you mean the new mental health support unit?". Bonk adds: "This should be good!" Frames three and four are also joined and contain the same grouping as in the first two frames. Liz is saying:"Read out the comment I've marked Ben - it's priceless!" Ben looks at the pages from the feed-back report and finds the comment marked by a large red asterisk. He reads: "What if my kids catch schizophrenia?" Val, who's at the far right of the group comments: "But worse ... what if her kids catch prejudice?!"
