Wear Your Meds is about creating a discussion around mental illness medications to help fight the stigma against using them.
When you “wear your heart on your sleeve,” it means you’re being honest, open, and vulnerable. When you wear your meds on your sleeve, you’re doing the same.
Each button shows a commonly-prescribed mental illness medication. Anyone who wears one of these buttons is signaling that they’re open to sharing their personal story of how the medication helped.
It’s a conversation starter for those open to sharing their experiences. It’s also a show of solidarity with those who recognize the medication as their own but may have felt alone in taking it.
Above all, it’s a simple way to be proud of your progress and encourage others to seek professional help if they need it. Wear Your Meds on your sleeve, and you might just change someone’s life.
All proceeds from the sales of Wear Your Meds buttons will be donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.
