Come join us for our first ever event & seminar! We are hoping this will be the first event in a series addressing various issues in mental health, focusing on mental health within radical communities. We will be discussing systematic oppression and trauma, depathologizing and demedicalizing mental illness, how to talk to a therapist, etc. We also hope to provide a full resource list for mental health help in the Bay Area.

Future events will be covering: anxiety, depression, trauma & PTSD, the patriarchy, queers, trans, and poc & mental health (respectively), spirtuality and healing in radical communities, etc etc. We are super open to suggestions.

For questions or concerns email: breadandroses [at] gmail.com

Bread and Roses Mental Health Working Group is an anti-capitalist collective interested in broadening political analysis by removing mental health from the medical and personal contexts and addressing it as a community and social issue that intersects with struggles against white supremacy, patriarchy, colonialism, and other forms of oppression. We want to open a regular space for conversations about mental health that deepen our understanding of these intersections, address the ways our community might replicate oppressive structures, and develop skills to be with one another in our daily lives and in the streets as a strategy to attack the state and resist oppression. Strong communities build strong resistance.
