Although mental health stigma is still very much alive and well, more and more companies are joining the fight and creating products aimed at increasing awareness and starting conversations about mental illness. There are tons of small businesses with this goal which you can read about in my gift guide, but today I wanted to talk about one in particular.
Moods is a company founded and run by college students, they initially created Vine themed stickers. But this soon grew as their main demographic had one shared growing concern: mental health.
It is said that 50% of mental health problems are established by age 14, and 75% by age 24. These are alarming statistics, which is why so many people ask the question – what can we do?
The great thing about a lot of companies creating products to promote mental health awareness and self care is that in most cases, they donate a share of the profits to mental health charities. So when you buy from Moods, you’re not only spreading awareness, but your money is going to Active Minds, which focuses on mental education, research, and advocacy for young people.
Unfortunately, as of writing this, Moods only ship to the US. Hopefully in the near future they will expand to international shipping, because I’ve already picked out my favourite stickers!
I’ve included links below, what are your favourites?
