Something I got from inpatient. Very helpful!
As a writer with mental health issues, I understand better than most about the type of troubles you can get into because your illness isn’t visible from the outside.
Even if you can’t donate, help out by spreading the word.

This amazing image is part of a series of maps in a manuscript from the 1460s. What is striking is not just that we can so clearly recognize Europe, Asia and Africa, but that these continents are depicted so incredibly beautifully, in deep blue and gold. The map seems to float in space and above it various winds are blowing, produced by men with toy trumpets. Clouds are quietly drifting by. Who can resist jumping in and becoming part of this intoxicating blue world?

Julije Klović’s very early (c. 1539–1546) illustration of a Greater Bird of Paradise (left), the first known color illustration produced by a European. This may have been one of the skins brought back from the Maluku Islands by Magellan’s crew in 1622.

Twenty years before NWA screamed “Fuck tha Police” Marsha P. Johnson was in the streets of New York throwing shoes at them (so the story goes). Marsha P. Johnson (June 27, 1944 – July 6, 1992) aka “the Saint of Christopher Street” was an iconic trans* rights activist. She was a leader in the resistance against police harassment in what we know as the Stonewall Riots. She also was the cofounder of Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries (S.T.A.R.)
