In this practice, Rhiana Anthony of The Icarus Project offers us a concrete tool called "Mad Maps" to help us develop a plan to support our own mental health. Use this worksheet to follow along and participate: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1I2vtfT-j1R4KcA5F710YvD9XiVB8xpjv/view?usp=sharing
In the previous episode (Destigmatizing Mental Health), we talk with Agustina Vidal and Rhiana Anthony of The Icarus Project about everything mental health: why mental health is stigmatized in the first place, how it interplays with systems of oppression, suicide, ableism, medication, hospitalization, and more.
The Icarus Project is a support network and education project by and for people who experience the world in ways that are often diagnosed as mental illness. We advance social justice by fostering mutual aid practices that reconnect healing and collective liberation. We transform ourselves through transforming the world around us. http://www.theicarusproject.net
Rhiana Anthony (she, they, boo) is a queer black girl magician working toward collective liberation through community organizing, soulful facilitation, and healing justice. Her roots run from the Third Coast of Houston, TX and the Piney Woods of Marshall, TX. Rhiana currently works as the Icarus Project webinar coordinator and facilitator, founder/consultant of Conjure Community Healing Arts, and trainer for The Isaiah Young Institute.
