Mad voices come in many forms: memoirs, diaries, poetry, art, analysis, journalism, and ephemera. This section provides a wide array of Canadian expressions of the lived experiences of mental health. It also provides links to relevant Canadian resources that can be found in other libraries and archives.
We aim to expand this section through the continual discovery of mad people’s work hiding in archives, filing cabinets and forgotten cardboard boxes. Please let us know [link to form] if you have such treasures.
If this material is to be used in a published form that renders it publicly available, permission to use this material must be sought from Madness Canada. Classroom, conference or personal use does not require our permission.
