Ongoing Mtg's

Icarus Meetings

Every Wed.

Time: 12pm (noon) – 1pm

Where: 800 Scenic Ave,
In the Sunset Room/Bldg. 4
Modesto Ca,.

The Icarus Project envisions a new culture and language that resonates with our actual experiences of 'mental illness' rather than trying to fit our lives into a conventional framework. We are a network of people living with experiences that are commonly labeled as bipolar or other psychiatric conditions. We believe we have mad gifts to be cultivated and taken care of, rather than diseases or disorders to be suppressed or eliminated. By joining together as individuals and as a community, the intertwined threads of madness and creativity can inspire hope and transformation in an oppressive and damaged world.

For Bldg. 4, turn into parking lot right after Bodem St. across from cemetery, Bldg. 4 is to the left of parking lot. For more details on Sunset Room (Bldg. 4), email Noel:

* Confidentiality – We vow to not talk about each other outside of the meetings. Please, no outside the circle gossip or rumors. We want to create a place for people to come together, not a place that alienates us or others.
