Black Lives Matter


The tragedy at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston is another event demonstrating the relentless racism against Black people, who are disproportionately targeted by police brutality and social violence. White people must participate in fighting racism and ensure that dialogue about this event centers the experiences of being Black in anti-Black America.

Welcome to The Icarus Project.


We are a support network and media project by and for people who experience the world in ways that are often diagnosed as mental illness. We envision a new culture that allows the space and freedom for exploring different states of being, and recognizes that breakdown can be the entrance to breakthrough. We aim to create a language that is so vast and rich that it expresses the infinite diversity of human experiences.

Las Vegas


The Icarus Project Las Vegas is an emerging group. If you would like to know more or become a co-organiser, email LM at lasvegas(at)



Please email the group prior to attending a meeting - they are not able to support unscheduled drop-ins.


We are focused on cultivating a community of people who suffer from atypical experiences (that often get labeled as "mental illness") and feel disenfranchised from society as well as those who support them. Along with fostering a safe social atmosphere, we are committed to helping our members interface with the world and contribute their gifts and talents.
