Right now, our pal Linka is facing an epic mental health crisis. They can't get through the day without a lot of medication. They can't spend any time on their own. They can't go to work.
Sadly, their job has decided to dock their pay by 50%, for the sheer audacity of (shock! horror!) being disabled. Without this money, they won't be able to afford rent, bills or basic necessities for self-care.
This would be terrible at the best of times, but this crisis has extra costs too: taxis to get to medical appointments and safe places without mental health meltdowns, prescriptions for new meds, extra electricity bills from spending more time at home, having to buy new comfy clothes and bedding for extended periods in bed...
There's no way of knowing how long this crisis will last. We're rallying round and providing practical support the best we can for our pal and their carer – being around during the day, running errands, cooking food – but we don't have an extra salary lying around. It will be a long time until they're back in the normal routine of life and work.
Linka and their carer really need your help too. A mental health crisis is life-threatening and stressful enough on its own without the added dangers of a financial crisis.
Please, donate as much as you can today.
