Own Your Stigma is a an apparel project with a purpose.
I am proud to be an ambassador of a product whose profits directly impact the quality of life for those living with mental illness.
Own Your Stigma made me realize that I am in charge of the labels I wear and the message I send.
I love my Coffee, Cats & Mental Health t-shirt! Every time I wear it someone strikes up a conversation with me on mental health.
