'All Of Us Are Medicated' is a collaborative project curated by Slow Clinic (James Edward Armstrong) exploring themes of depression, anxiety, and stress through spoken word, music, and creative sound design. The project is supported by the Mental Health Foundation, and has been released for Mental Health Awareness Week 2018, with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the supporting charity.

Following a severe increase in cases of depression, anxiety, and other various stress-related conditions, 'All Of Us Are Medicated' has been created to draw attention to this. A notable increase of prescribed medication for depression and anxiety amongst higher education students, especially those undertaking university and postgraduate degrees, is of deep concern. Having recently completed a doctoral research project, it became apparent that almost all of James' friends in higher education were on prescribed medication, influencing the title of the project and the motivations behind it.

Spoken word contributions came from a number of poets, artists, and musicians in response to an open call via Facebook and Twitter. A majority of the sound design within the project was created by manipulating variations of paracetamol with a number of different objects and surfaces, with the addition of improvised guitar performances recorded by Slow Clinic. Each contribution is entirely the work of the respective artist, who were provided with a brief description of the project background and supported causes.

The release includes a limited edition of 30 CDrs mounted on an A5 mixed media collage, each unique and hand numbered. The release is also available as a digital download.
