The Icarus Project: Navigating the Space between Brilliance and Madness
The DSM Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, the ‘yellow pages’ of mental illness diagnosis, has an online page inviting people to suggest new mental illnesses for its upcoming fifth edition. Join an international campaign to log in to the DSM site and add World Domination Disorder, with the case study based on one example: George Bush.

Download and print out the first draft of our long-awaited Support Manual, titled Friends Make the Best Medicine: A Guide to Creating Community Mental Health Support Networks.
Icarus also provides detailed guidelines to withdrawing from prescription drugs, downloadable information sheets and flyers, articles, ezines and up-to-date reports on news of importance to those who navigate the space between brilliance and madness. Are you one of these people? I am.
