You can change the negative perception of mental illness.

We design simple but powerful conversation starters that don’t label or define the wearer.

When one in five people will experience mental illness in a given year, it touches all of our lives in one way or another. And yet, those who live with mental illness still face discrimination and judgement from strangers, the media, and those close to them. This creates a major barrier to recognizing signs of mental illness in ourselves and accessing treatment when we need it. 

One in Five Apparel empowers you to change the conversation on mental illness. Our designs invite conversation and reflection on preconceived notions of what mental illness looks like. We provide resources and content to support you in talking about mental illness through our blog and through our newsletter
