Sascha Altman Dubrul, co-founder of The Icarus Project, an international community support network and media project working to redefine the culture of mental health, discusses his work during a summit of leaders from the mental health movement at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA.
In December 2012, a group of nearly 40 leaders from the mental health movement congregated at the storied Esalen Institute in Big Sur. Here, Dubrul talks about that experience, as well as his work and upcoming book “Maps to the Other Side: Adventures of a Bipolar Cartographer.” Sascha is a mental health activist, writer, farmer and was the bass player of the classic 90s ska-punk band “Choking Victim.” He and fellow Icarista Jacks McNamara will be embarking on a book tour starting this spring. This is latest in a series of interviews which will be featured on MadinAmerica.com
