Jude is an 18 year-old queer person who uses she/her/hers and they/them/theirs pronouns. She is a settler on the unceded Coast Salish Territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Sto:lo Nations. After roughly two weeks of mania, Jude was admitted to the Vancouver General Hospital on Friday, May 12th 2017 and diagnosed with Bipolar 1.
This blog aims to provide tangible support for Jude during this crisis. It has been created after in-person discussions with her about what support looks like to her. This blog seeks not only to aid in collecting and maximizing resources in order to help Jude’s communities support her, but to document her experiences in the medical industrial complex. We intend that this will serve as a resource for those who may find themselves in a similar position in the future.
