Mad Maps: A Community Care Kit Project Skill Session

November 12, 2019

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM


Disability Cultural Center, 235 BSB


1007 W. Harrison St., Chicago, IL 60607

Join us as we work through the Icarus Project’s resource “Mad Maps” together. Mad Maps are a concrete tool that we can use to develop a plan to support our own mental health.

Access Info: The DCC is located on the second floor, accessible by elevator. Remote CART will be provided. UIC is not a fragrance free campus. In order for us to maintain a low fragrance environment, please refrain from wearing fragrances to DCC events. Contact for additional access needs.

This event is part of our series "Community Care Kit Project". This project aims to shift the responsibility of care from individuals towards the community by creating community-sourced shoebox care kits that can be borrowed from the DCC. Skill sessions will focus on learning how to use a particular care tool.

Icarus Project Mission Statement:
The Icarus Project is a support network and education project by and for people who experience the world in ways that are often diagnosed as mental illness. We advance social justice by fostering mutual aid practices that reconnect healing and collective liberation. We transform ourselves through transforming the world around us.
