Wear Your Meds
Wear Your Meds is about generating a discussion around mental illness meds to help fight the stigma against using them. Wearing a button with your prescribed medication is a show of solidarity, a conversation starter, and a simple way to normalize the conversation and empower others to seek professional help. It has received press in Fast Company, Brit + Co, TODAY Show, and The Now TV, syndicated nationally.
There are currently 14 different meds available on Wear Your Meds buttons: Zoloft, Lithium, Adderall, Ativan, Klonopin, Desyrel, Lexapro, Lamictal, Effexor, Cymbalta, Celexa, Wellbutrin, Xanax, and Prozac. All proceeds go to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
The website includes the button shop, backstory, FAQ, and a page with mental health resources.
