We are a community...

of mental health workers, clinicians, psychiatrists, current and prior users of mental health services, advocates, artists, and survivors of trauma and adversity, who are interested in exploring the link between personal and societal transformation.

We believe

that change happens through dynamic collaboration between clinicians in the field and advocates on the frontlines dedicated to shifting policy and practice while building and uplifting safe alternatives. We understand that it is time for a new paradigm in mental health: one that does not deny anyone self-determination and healing, that accounts for the complexity of personal, social, and collective traumas, that opens up our narrow definition of "normal" for the full range of human experience, and allows us to look beyond medicalized and disease-centered thinking to offer regenerative, holistic, and transformative practices.
