Sprout Distro

Class Struggle & Mental Health

This zine explores mental health as it relates to libertarian/anarchist activism. It was compiled by participants on the forum Libcom.org who through their discussions discovered the prevalence of depression, mental illness, and emotional stress within radical spaces. The text covers general advice, management strategies, personal accounts, advice from anarchist/radical mental health workers, and more. It isn’t a substitute for professional mental health advice, but it’s a good starting point for raising these issues in anarchist spaces.

Note: This zine contains reference to suicide.

Excerpt

Some people think they can forget their problems by giving all their time to activism. That's unrealistic. You can't expect mental stability from activism.
