J. Cole says it best on his song "Friends" (10) (Listen to a snippet, sign-in to you're a/c or purchase to listen to the full song). Forget that you don't like rap or the infamous "N word" and really listen for a second. Sometimes it's exactly what's in need.
Mental health awareness is an important topic to us. Depression and drug addiction unfortunately go hand in hand sometimes and people need support in this area of their lives to. We all have our vices, but for someone who is depressed or suffers periods of heightened anxiety thinks drugs or alcohol can ease their pain or distract them from reality. We have all seen the long term effects of depression and drug addiction, taking action early is crucial. Our depression & drug addiction awareness T-shirts and hoodie collection is about being bold and warning early not to play with fire.
Sometimes the people directly affected by those suffering from depression is a lot to bare also and they deserve a shout out for their unconditional love and support. We have witnessed first hand the mistakes people make when they are depressed or act on feelings of anxiety when around their family, children and in public. We echo again, support is needed on an ongoing basis and seems to be neglected as a topic in the world we live in today. Mental health is a growing problem now.
Like others before us maybe, the Black family (Partner) in a short space of time, suffered the loss of 3 family members from sudden suicide - 2 brothers and a son of one of the brothers. We would say they where all too young to die and we miss them. They won't be named for privacy but there ages are memorable for sure. 23, 43, 50. When these things happen so suddenly it's such a shock and seems even more to bare. Theres no chance of offering support or more time now to help fix things. In these circumstances people hide it so well or you never expect them to do such a thing. Again, our perspective in wearing this top is to act as an early warning to people struggling and to reach out. The depression awareness t shirts and depression & Drug addiction t shirts also pay homage to those who still remember or mourn.
Majority of proceeds from this collection will go towards helping those suffering from different mental illnesses, depression and those who have suffered loss.
