Buy Lyss Cypher (they / them) a coffee


Hello, everyone! I am a radical mental health community organizer, writer, consultant, and artist. On any given day, you might see me organizing virtual mutual aid support spaces, doing neighborhood community development work, leading writing spaces for Queer teens, or consulting with peers and community members on radical mental health. When I'm feeling creative, I write poems or express myself through hand-cut collage and cross-stitch. My favorite topics to create around are madness, neurodiversity, trauma, family, and birds.

Current Pathways:

I am available for one-on-one radical mental health consulting and coaching on a sliding scale basis.

I can do a small number of free, one-on-one anti-racist mentoring sessions with other white people on a monthly basis, focusing on working with white people from rural / rural-adjacent backgrounds (especially Southwestern Pennsylvania) and Mad / mentally ill / disability communities. Send me a message if you want to learn more.

I do my best to bring free or low-cost education, expression, and support spaces to workshops, writing, and conversations. If you’ve learned something from my work or appreciate what I do, please consider buying me a coffee! All funds will help me continue to develop and post more content and generally not die under capitalism. 

Thank you!
