[1] The Jane Addams Collective is a small anarchist collective made up of social workers, psychologists and others who believe that in order to have a true and sustainable culture of resistance we must be able to maintain our mental health. We believe that this work is an essential part of community self defense.

The collective, working in New York City, creates innovative mental health programs, organizes workshops and longer interventions exploring a mutual aid-based understanding of mental health care, and programs educational and cultural events.
