Do you or someone in your life deal with mental health issues? Mental illness is an extremely common but little understood and highly stigmatized issue in our society.
In this class we will talk about some of the basics of mental illness and how it can affect you and loved ones in the context of kink and BDSM. We will cover different mental illness, coping techniques for everyone affected by mental illness, how to be supportive and be supported, and how to differentiate between therapeutic activities and therapy and where kink fits in that spectrum.
This class is taught from the joint perspective of Claudia, mental health professional with a clinical background and Lilah, who is currently in recovery from a long history of serious mental illness and has extensive experience treatment modalities.
