Functionally Ill is a free mental health zine by Laura-Marie Taylor.

In this zine, subtitled "Adventures with Mental Health" and "becoming bipolar", Laura-Marie discusses what depression and mania feel like for her and describes her voices. She details the process of getting on with county mental health including an evaluation over the phone and an intake appointment. It's text heavy, digest-sized, 20 pages, and bound with string.

A second issue is subtitled "Adventures with Mental Health" and "deeply myself." It includes a longer essay on the construction of mental illness as well as a detailed account of Laura-Marie's first psychiatrist appointment and an essay on the question of medication.

Selections from Functionally Ill are reprinted in volume nine of Zine Yearbook, published in 2008.
