Clothes can be a tool to start conversations about anything. They can be used to inspire you to talk about something that is important to you or to help bring confidence and comfort. They can start conversations by being eye catching or by how they make you feel. The goal of our designs is to start conversations about mental health. These conversations could look like sharing the purpose behind the clothes, sharing a brand with someone else to spread information and resources, or becoming inspired or comfortable to share your own story. While these conversations will look different for everyone, we hope they can lead to someone being inspired to learn more, share accessible information and support resources, and create connections around mental health that wouldn’t have been otherwise discovered.
Talking about mental health is important because it can eliminate stigmas, raise awareness, provide better access to information and resources, and help you connect with others.
