Contributors from the Libcom.org and Edmonton Small Press Association have produced a pamphlet bringing together accounts from anarchists around the globe about what it means to suffer from mental illness and what we, as individuals and a movement, can do about it.
I haven’t had a chance to read it fully yet, however it looks pretty rich in real-life accounts and ideas about what we can do better to support each other. I’ve never gone through depression myself, however have supported several people that have. Especially as a young girl supporting a mother with clinical depression. I have longed for more information and awareness about how these issues connect to class and how we have a radical responsibility to look out for each other. It’s not just for the ‘professionals’ or for intimate partners. It affects us all. Hopefully this zine will contribute to learning how we do this better.
