Our Mission is to not only provide awareness but with our limited-edition apparel of shirts support those in need struggling with affording medication an other mental health services.
IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW IS SUFFERING DON'T WAIT TO GET HELP!
The best things are born from despair, complete loss, and personal suffering, but when your born with a mental health issue or possibly suffered from a tragedy that shattered your mental health not many people can see or understand that. Millions suffer in silence, cry uncontrollably at night, abuse substances or worse attempt to take their own life. At times mental health is looked at like a disease or a problem, even something just to be swept under the rug or shrugged off with a word or two, sure there's plenty of help and services out there but you don't see anyone walking around with their issue on their back.
We want to show awareness through our one of a kind design artwork. We want to bring people together simply by wearing a shirt and if we can just affect one person for the better while at the same time donating to a good cause than we'll do just that.
