The Icarus Project


“We (the icarus project) are a website community, support network of local groups, and media project created by and for people struggling with bipolar disorder and other dangerous gifts commonly labeled as “mental illnesses.” We believe that when we learn to take care of ourselves, the intertwined threads of madness and creativity can be tools of inspiration and hope in a repressed and damaged world. Our goal is to help people like ourselves feel less alienated, and to allow us—both as individuals and as a community—to tap into the true potential that lies between brilliance and madness.”

This is such a sensitive and recourceful site. It’s worth checking out if you are looking for “alternatives to the medical model and the traumatic legacy of psychiatric abuse.”
