ICI is providing these resources to help facilitate critical education and discussion about a variety of topics and issues related to all things “mental health”. Inclusion in this list does not necessarily imply endorsement by ICI. Some of these resources are closely aligned with our mission, vision, and values. Others may use terms or ideas, promote values or beliefs, or engage in activities that are not fully in sync with what we believe in, strive towards, or envision as an organization; however, we’ve included them here because, in our estimation, they still contribute constructively to some aspects of our overall mission.
