A resource on the intersections of mental health and anti-oppression
The Icarus project, long known for taking a radical approach around issues of mental health and madness, write this about the document:
Along the way we’ve learned that our communities are impacted by societal systems in different ways, and that these differences affect our mental health. Our guides approach important issues such as oppression and intergenerational trauma and invite you to join others in crafting solutions that help transform the health of our communities. This guide will help you make your own Mad Map. Drawing from the input of hundreds of members of the Icarus Project community, it will take you step by step through the process of creating your own wellness documents. The guides help you identify and share what you need for support in times of crisis, with the safety of knowing that you are drawing inspiration from tried and true resources shared by people with lived experiences. We hope you will recognize your own experiences in what others have written–and thus discover language to describe your experiences and new tools to maintain your well-being and transform your community.
