Anarchist Health & Wellness on Immediatism podcast

Anti-psychiatry is the topic of three of these seven episodes: "Fucked Off, Not Fucked Up," "It's Time for 'Mad Anarchism,'" and "Descending Into Madness: An Anarchist-Nihilist Diary of Anti-Psychiatry." We learn ways to anticipate and recognize trauma and to build resiliency into our affinity groups, in "Mutual Aid, Trauma, & Resiliency," based on the experiences of the Jane Addams Collective in New York City.
