Emotional Safety Planning

Emotional Safety Plans (Mad Maps) are wellness documents that help us to navigate our emotional terrains, particularly as they relate to issues like oppression and trauma. In our ESP workshop participants examine the way oppression impacts our perspectives and experiences of mental health, and explore non-judgmental approaches to emotional wellbeing, as well as build strategies for coping with and transforming individual struggles, especially in the larger context of social injustice. The insights and tools provided are all developed for and by Icarus Project members. This workshop can be tailored to specifically support LGBTQ people of color and youth audiences.
