This was the first of a series of femminars provided by The Icarus Project and organized by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha and Maryse Mitchell-Brody. It is an emotional safety planning webinar for femmes of all identities (people who identify as femme or feminine and queer and/or non-binary and/or trans.) In it, we talk about suicidality in our communities and selves, and share skills and strategies to navigate emotional distress, crisis intervention, and resilience.

***Please note: watching this femminar may bring up strong feelings and triggers. So, before you begin, take a moment to think about and make plans for what you need to feel safe(r) and grounded during and after the femminar. Things to think about might include: Where is a quiet, comfortable place where you will have privacy, snacks and comfort?
We hope to have the additional femminars edited and uploaded by January 21st, along with links to the resource list, so check back for more information. We are working on securing funding to provide closed captioning and transcription of this video. Send an email to maryse[at]theicarusproject.net to be notified if and when this is made possible.
