Canadian Mental Health Association
At Wearable Therapy by Tokii, our slogan is “Define Your Normal”. It is all about loving (or at least accepting) all sides of yourself and not being afraid of showing one of those sides to the world. We want to help start conversations through our designs and clothes – allowing people more of a chance to genuinely express themselves.
It’s difficult to embrace who you are if you feel like the rest of society doesn’t want to accept you as well. Many people living with mental illness encounter that feeling on a daily basis. Instead of being seen for the amazing and strong people that they are, they frequently feel isolated and like they are “crazy, weird, or different.” We are tackling these ideas through fashion and style rather than just words.
We believe that real change comes from not shying away from difficult topics, but by turning “taboo subjects” into discussions that we are having in media, at home, at work, and at school. We at Wearable Therapy by Tokii are so excited to be GETTING LOUD this Mental Health Week. We believe that change can’t happen without first sparking a meaningful conversation and that is what this week is all about. We want to help get people talking about mental health.
