Mental Health Matters

stickers with free resources.

This collection is my most personal yet. The pandemic was an extremely difficult time for everyone, and affected each of us differently. Personally, my anxiety came to a peak. Whether we watched someone suffer, lost a loved one, or were impacted in a completely different way, our minds and bodies were thrown into a state of constant fear of the unknown. Suddenly there was a conscious or subconscious struggle that connected us all. I'm hoping that this will help those on their anxiety recovery journey and raise awareness.

I want everyone to know that your struggle is not too small to talk about. There was simply no choice but to adjust to the world around us, which often meant neglecting our own needs. If this can resonate with/help just one person, this project has served its purpose. 

As I've discovered mental health resources, I've learned that many are free such as the ones listed; however many are not. It's frustrating that sometimes getting the help you need requires a certain financial status, and often times that goes vise versa. Most of the homeless population are in need of mental health care yet do not have access, cannot afford it, or cannot get employed in order to gain access because of their condition. It is a vicious cycle that needs more attention, especially in this country. We need to take care of each other more. This is why I am donating 100% of proceeds to the National Alliance on Mental Health which provides access to mental health care and support, as well as National Alliance to End Homelessness.
