Icarus Project Ten Years Later


The San Francisco Bay Guardian celebrates the Icarus Project’s ten-year anniversary with an article about its founders, Sascha DuBrul and Jacks McNamara, and the project’s radical growth since. “I wasn’t convinced, to say the least, that gulping down a handful of pills every day would make me sane,” says DuBrul in the Guardian article that started it all, “I think it’s really about time we start carving some more of the middle ground with stories from outside the mainstream and creating a new language for ourselves that reflects all the complexity and brilliance that we hold inside.”

Kermit Cole, MFT, founding editor of Mad in America, works in Santa Fe, New Mexico as a couples and family therapist. Inspired by Open Dialogue, he works as part of a team and consults with couples and families that have members identified as patients. His work in residential treatment — largely with severely traumatized and/or "psychotic" clients — led to an appreciation of the power and beauty of systemic philosophy and practice, as the alternative to the prevailing focus on individual pathology. A former film-maker, he has undergraduate and master's degrees in psychology from Harvard University, as well as an MFT degree from the Council for Relationships in Philadelphia. He is a doctoral candidate with the Taos Institute and the Free University of Brussels. You can reach him at [email protected].
