How do we give care to our people in times of emotional crisis? This workshop will help us support others to navigate altered states, depression, trauma, and more, while centering the needs and experiences of POC & LGBTQI+ people. Paying careful attention to the emotional impacts of oppression, we’ll pair resources and exercises from The Icarus Project with participants’ wisdom to explore healing strategies, emotional safety plans, and harm reduction tips for navigating the mental health mainstream.
