angelic troublemakers

This quote make me think of us, the Las Vegas Radical Mental Health Collective.  We speak the truth about:

*our own lives
*psychiatry
*family
*extreme states
*unmet needs
*disability
*medication
*hospital harm
*power
*gender
*community
*racism
*trauma
*feelings
*queerness
*violence
*capitalism
*what really works
All that truth plus mutual aid, with love and humor? Sounds fun / troublemaking.
We trouble the status quo of mental health treatment, and complexify how people with psychiatric diagnoses are seen.  We’re not your scapegoat or inspiration, simplified and easy.  We’re valid people.
But maybe we’re kind of angelic troublemakers also.
“We need, in every community, a group of angelic troublemakers.” — Bayard Rustin
