I hope you love the products as much as I do.
I spent a lot of time thinking about my first collection of products and what I wanted them to say, which is why I’ve included a note above each product type that tells you a little more of the thought behind the items.
Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be adding more products - some are in production and some are still in the design stage.
I’m really keen to hear what you think of the shop so far, the best place to catch me is Twitter, so please send me questions and comments (or you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
I hope that these tees can become a comfy part of your self care clothing, and help you show the world that it’s really ok to talk about our mental health and that living with mental illness, chronic illness and disability is nothing to be ashamed of. What’s important is that we all prioritise our health and happiness.
These mini pin badges are perfect for attaching to your coat or rucksack and come in 2 designs, I’ve attached both to my jacket already.
The Pigletish podcast is a collection of real and raw conversations about mental health and what it’s really like to live with mental illness. Alongside my wonderful guests and, assistant psychologist, Molly Scott, I delve into symptoms, self care, life, love and loss every Tuesday. If you’re a podcast subscriber, you can now show your support by wearing this cute 25mm badge (imagine if you bumped into someone else who was wearing one - how CUTE would that be?!!)
I designed the “real men cry” badge in support of men expressing their emotions and to fight the stigma that surrounds men in particular, when it comes to mental illness. I realise that wearing a “real men cry” badge is a strong statement to make, but I believe that we’re living in times in which strong statements are necessary. It’s OK for men to cry, and I’m ready to tell the world.
More products coming soon
All the money raised from this first collection will go back into pigletish and enable me to continue working on fighting stigma and raising awareness about issues surrounding mental health and mental illness via my blog, podcast and on social media.
