Good Evening Everyone,

We are back to updating our page here on Facebook.

We have a few announcements to make.

First:

11/10/2016

The Icarus Project

YOU ARE NOT ALONE - FIND A BUDDY

Are you struggling in the wake of recent political events? We're connecting people who would like a buddy to check in with during this time. If you live someplace where there aren't others like you, or you want to meet new people, or you just want to help someone else struggling at this time, or you need a listener--now's the time to connect.

You don't have to bear this alone. No revolution, no justice, was ever won by a single person, and you don't have to struggle through this without support. Your peers at Icarus have got this.

Just fill out the form and we'll share the results with those who participated and you can self-select a buddy based on your own criteria. We included a bunch of questions, just answer the ones that feel most relevant to you. Feel free to share this with communities who might benefit.

As always, a disclaimer, we're not matching folks or responsible for anyone's behavior. Let's all be good to each other. If someone harasses or abuses you let us know and we'll remove them from the spreadsheet.

You can contact us at [email protected]

https://goo.gl/forms/FGlKA4PhgMGs0oQD2

If you are having trouble viewing the spreadsheet, this is the direct link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1c_3D3VORKd0P56BcyGNThtvwJ8WPZqBvNL5LzIWx8wk/pubhtml

The Root

Let's talk about #mentalhealth in the black community

Depression is a silent killer and many black people are often silent about it. Many of us refuse to recognize depression as a mental illness, if we're even willing to get away from the stigma and talk about it. And suicide? Black people don't do that, right? Wrong. We have to learn how to talk about depression and suicide in the black community...out loud. So let's talk about it.
