August 18th and 26th
12:00pm – 4:00pm (each session)
When it comes to understanding how we got to where we are and thinking about where we are headed, history is sometimes our best teacher. Come explore mad* movement histories through themes of resistance to oppression and building alternative supports, and through lenses of racial, disability, economic, and gender justice. We will look at and discuss some primary sources, and there will be short assignments in advance of our sessions.
* including ex-patients, psychiatric survivors, psychiatrically labeled/disabled, neurodivergent, experiencing extreme states, marginalized by sanism, and many more self-described identities.
This is a two-part training. Registration for both parts is required.
