I recently came across the Icarus Project website, which is run by a group of anarchists who are copping with various mental disorders, primarily bipolar (also called manic-depression). It’s a very well researched site, with lots of good suggestion on alternative treatments and a lively discussion board. Considering that persons in extremist groups often carry a lot of emotional trauma with them, this site provides a valuable service. It’s encouraging to see a group of anarchists doing something useful with their time rather than engaging in the nihilistic violence which has often recently been the hallmark of that ideology.
