Mad Maps


an upcoming Icarus Project publication

What are Mad Maps?

In a world that seals up the side trails, hidden doors and underground caves, forcing us all to walk the arbitrary straight path of so-called normalcy, The Icarus Project is perhaps the last respite left for exploring the art of getting lost. Fueled by hope and creativity, our members have been artfully forging roads and making maps that define our journeys with mental health struggles in the context of a crookedly beautiful world. We have called these cartographic musings Mad Maps.

Sascha Branches Out from The Icarus Project


After years of peer support work, Sascha is finding a place for himself as a radical mental health practitioner while wrapping up his first year of social work school in New York City. Inspired by his experiences with Icarus, and drawing on his social work schooling, Sascha’s new focus will be building tools for mental health practice that are rooted in visionary storytelling and collective liberation.
