Whenever you buy from Little Brave, we donate 10% of all of our profits to Mind, the mental health charity.
1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem each year in Britain - that's a quarter of the population. Big strides have been made within the last few years to normalise talking about mental health, but there is still a lot of work to be done to remove the stigma and to get us talking about it just like we do our physical health. We wouldn't think twice about going to the doctors to treat an infection, yet so many people simply cannot access the care they need when in crisis due to insufficient funding and low political priority.
Sometimes people think that because their issue isn't a 'serious' problem, it's not a bona fide mental health issue and that they should just 'get a grip' or get on with it. Mental health can encompass all kinds of normal human experiences like loneliness, bereavement, low self esteem and stress. It's important to know that whatever you're going through, you are not alone and you deserve help!
Mind's aim is to make sure anybody suffering with a mental health problem can access the support they need, free from the fear of stigma, and to give people the tools they need to get and stay well. Mind are constantly fighting for mental health to be high on the political agenda, and for it to be recognised as something just as important as physical health. They work tirelessly to get mental health talked about in the media, by celebrities, politicians, workplaces and health services. There is also a comprehensive library of information on their website about mental health disorders, treatments, therapies, medications and where to go for support with anything from housing to bereavement.
Every time you buy from Little Brave, you are not only reminding yourself that you have absolutely got this - you're also helping the other quarter of the population who need a bit of help too!
