I am available as a radical mental health consultant, focusing around the meaningful inclusion of people with lived experience of mental illness, madness, and other identities in mental health.
Radical mental health is a dynamic and innovative term describing how individuals and groups are finding new ways to understand and conceptualize mental health. The movement supports more inclusive and diverse perspectives on mental health, prioritizing the voices of people with lived experience as educators and experts.
Here are some examples of presentations I can provide for your organization:
Introductory Workshops: What is Radical Mental Health? What is Mad Pride?
Mad-Inclusionary Mental Health: How Therapists Can Make Their Practices More Inclusive
Outside Mental Illness: Alternative Conceptualizations of Mental Health
I am also available as a mental health consultant for work with children, teens, and young adults - specifically around creative expression, writing, and mental health.
Note: I am not a therapist and cannot provide mental health treatment or therapy.
