Activist Trauma Support

'This site is primarily for political activists who may be injured during or by their political activities and or struggling with other mental health issues related to activism. Hopefully much of the information is useful to other groups and individuals who either have to face violence or repression where ever it may come from. It seems that as a movement we have not sufficiently acknowledged the psychological effects of the brutality and stress that an increasing number of us are subjected too.'

theicarusproject Navigating the Space Between Brilliance and Madness. Site full of resources and spaces for nurturing community in the face of monoculture.

'The Icarus Project is creating a new culture and language that resonates with our actual experiences of madness and “mental illness” rather than trying to fit our lives into a conventional framework.'

Time Management for Anarchists Tips on self-organising, getting projects done and reducing stress. Also available as fun animation.
