Mental Health is a Process | Andrea Soueidan Shares Her Story

Mental health is not a destination, but a process. It’s about how you drive, not where you’re going.

Mulberry Silk Face Mask Made in Canada

A covered mouth alludes to being silenced. On the contrary, this is a mask that encourages speaking up. We need to destigmatize mental health, an issue that touches upon each of us. It does not discriminate by race, by age, by gender or any other demographic trait. No one is immune. Many suffer in silence.

#MindfulArtxMentalHealth highlights purposeful works of art and encourages conversation about mental health. The masks are a canvas for the unique artwork of artists/patients from Les Impatients, a local non-profit organization. Every piece tells the story of an artist struggling with mental health issues, sharing their journey to recovery through the power of creative expression. 10% of all proceeds are given back to the community to support and raise awareness for mental health.

We need to come together as a community to normalize talking about mental health, dispel the stigma and support those living with mental health issues. By sharing a thought or a story, your voice may open discussion and a door to helping someone's struggle.

Nathon Kong is a fashion brand with a purpose: to raise awareness for mental health through artistic expression.
