Mental Health Cafe is a space for peers and allies to have open conversations that represent a wide variety of opinions and beliefs. As a community, we expect everyone to hold respectful conversations, and we have zero tolerance for hateful views and discrimination. Anyone who attacks, harasses, or discriminates against another community member will be asked to leave and will be potentially banned from future events. As a space, we prioritize and center the voices of people with lived experience (of madness, trauma, mental illness, substance use / addiction, or another similar experience) and those from marginalized communities. Others are welcome to participate in our spaces, as long as they are respectful and follow our Radical Mental Health community guidelines. You can read our full Intentional Space Clause at http://insideourminds.org/intentional-space-clause/.
Mental Health Cafe is not meant to be a substitute for professional mental health treatment, and we do not have mental health professionals present in this capacity. Unlike some traditional mental health support groups, Mental Health Cafe does not enforce treatment compliance or adhere to purely medical model views. Our events are a welcoming space for all conceptualizations of mental health.
Inside Our Minds is a project of New Sun Rising.
