Since I moved into my “over-occupied” home, my quality of life has absolutely exploded. Through illegal co-op housing, I’ve become part of a non-traditional family that I can relate to. We support each other in projects, environmentalism, and new ideas. I don’t think our society values mental health enough, but I have found a safe space for myself to express my emotions and struggles. Living with 4 or more unrelated adults should be legalized!
