I am writing an article about the ways
in which we need to develop a more
compassionate and cohesive strategy for
dealing with what is commonly termed
"mental health issues" in our
communities. The original proposal for
the article is below. Right now, I am
looking for people to respond to a
questionnaire over email about your

amanda@resist.ca with questions or to

There are 2 parts, the first would be
closed-ended questions about what you
experience/how you situate yourself

from the person/people involved. I will
transfer responses to a file that
doesn’t associate directly to your
name, email or contact info. The survey
will ask permission to maintain a system for
reassociating your contact info with
your questionnaire in the event that i
want to ask permission to follow up with
you specifically. If you decline
permission, I will remove any way of
associating your contact info with your

This is not rigorous research and not
supervised by anyone else; i have no
formal training in research methods and
do not have any criteria for
participation other than self-selection.

At the moment, i want to use these
responses as indications of the
realities of people in left-libertarian
scenes in an article i am writing
for perspectives. i hope to do public
talks and more writing in the
