The Icarus Project: creating a new language and culture around healing mental distress

Occasionally Beyond Meds will post a call for support or give readers a heads up about something that’s happening in the radical mental health and alternatives movement.


The Icarus Project, publisher of the Harm Reduction Guide to Coming Off Psychiatric Drugs, is in the running for a $25,000 grant to continue their good work. You can help increase their chances by leaving a comment at the following link about how their work has had a positive impact on your life and the lives of your loved ones: Scattergood Foundation/Icarus Project 

Here’s the call for support from The Icarus Project:

As we’ve expanded our vision, we’ve begun to seek out additional funding sources. The Scattergood Foundation is gifting $25,000 to an organization that is carrying out innovative plans in the field of mental health — this is exciting news as The Icarus Project has been working for over a decade to create a new language and culture for people dealing with experiences labeled as “mental disorders.” This grant would allow us to expand our work into offering concrete alternatives to the mainstream narrative of the mental health system.

There is a public comment period and what people have to say about the work of The Icarus Project goes a long way toward supporting us in winning this Innovation Award!

You can help us by:
