An undercurrent is a strong current of water that moves below the surface current and in a different direction to it. One of our main objectives as a collective is to gather together these mental health 'undercurrents' in the form of stories from those who have experienced ill mental health as well as from those who help them.
These undercurrents can provide much solace to people living with ill mental health. They are narratives of those who have been historically marginalised, aiming to splinter widely accepted truths about people, cultures, and institutions.
Ship of Fool's OPEN ARCHIVE is aimed to establish a collection of undercurrents from a wide range of minority communities, as well as voices of dissent from within the institutions involved with these groups. Please submit your own or others' songs, poems, stories, videos, etc., to contribute to this growing project.
