COVID-19 has been difficult for many.
Imagine: some of us lost everything. Imagine the repercussions... mental health... so hard to cheer up troops.
Believe me, during this pandemic, we've lost the thread of touching each other, seeing each other and wondering how it's going. How are you really doing?
I myself have had big panic attacks. They say depression is the evil of the century and it's so true.

A covered mouth refers to silence. On the contrary, this is a mask that encourages speaking. We need to destigmatize mental health, a problem that affects each of us. Mental illness does not discriminate by race, age, gender or any other demographic trait. No one is safe. Many suffer in silence.
Mindful Art x Mental Health highlights art and encourages conversation about mental health. Masks are a canvas for unique artwork by Les Impatients artists / patients, a local nonprofit organization. Each piece tells the story of an artist struggling with mental health issues, sharing his journey to recovery through the power of creative expression. 10 % of all proceeds are donated to the community to support and raise awareness of the mental health. We need to gather as a community to normalize mental health discussions, dispel stigma and support those living with mental health issues. By sharing a thought or story, your voice can open the discussion and a door to help someone fight.
Nathon Kong creates art pieces with the purpose of making clothing our customers can relate to on an emotional level, of raising awareness for mental health, and of giving back to the community.
