Hello from Lived Collective

Lived Collective is a community for people with lived experiences in madness and neurodivergence. Based in Toronto, Canada, Lived Collective was conceptualized through the Yale LET(s)Lead program hosted by CAMH.

Our first project, Lived Magazine, is a publication about our lived experiences. Released twice a year, the magazine is by our community, for our community. It is comprised of lived experiences, art, writing, resources, and more from mad and neurodivergent people around the world. The magazine aims to provide people with lived experience a platform to share their perspectives and passions, dispelling stigmas by redefining what mental health means to us.

She believes in the value of lived experience, both professionally and personally, and hopes to build a powerful mad community through this project.
