Organizer/Author
An exploration and discussion of the history, treatment, and politics of "madness" that radical folks face when dealing with their mental health. We'll address topics like: How has madness been defined? Does mental illness exist? How can we navigate the system if we need to? What alternatives are available? How can we learn effective self-care? What is the history of the emotional extremes commonly labeled as mental illness? What can we do in times of crisis? How can we apply principles of harm reduction? What are the politics behind mental health treatment in this country? How are experiences of mental health/mental illness affected by race, class, gender, and sexual orientation? How does trauma, both psychological and physical, affect our mental health?

The Bay Area Radical Mental Health Collective is a group of people who have all struggled with mental health problems either in their own lives or as allies to friends and family. We are trying to open discussion about alternatives, provide resources, and get dialogue going about mental health in the radical community.
