A comic strip illustrating one of the arts-based approaches we have used in teaching students in health and social care because they are powerful in addressing an emotional or affective level of learning that counterbalances the mechanistic and technical-rational teaching so prevalent in the professions. Cheese or Ham was reproduced as a comic strip handout for students on the topic of communication in services for people with demential. It has showne the potential for an effective and economic learning-aid in mental health and related issues. In fact, it was a simplification from one of a series of digital story films on that topic., following the idea that, for any subject, key concepts need first to be identified and simplified in order to communicate them.
