Benefiting NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness

All proceeds will be contributed to Stephanie Mariani NAMI fundraiser

As an individual who has struggled with mental illness her entire life and had to seek her own treatment I know what it’s like to be alone through it all. I know the hardships of staying in bed for days not wanting to do anything including simple tasks society says you are required to do. I know what it is like to have no appetite and when the days seem shorter but the nights seem longer. I know the nights where crying yourself to sleep is the norm and wanting to inflict pain on yourself is a recurring thought. It hurts my heart to say but I have always been alone when it came to mental health. I had no family or friends who understood. I held the burdens of my mind on my shoulders until I discovered NAMI. One day I had reached a breaking point and told myself that I am human. I am not perfect and I know I need help. The first time I looked for help was a simple Google search when I was a kid in high school. Meanwhile my parents told me it was all in my head and to pray to god. I found my actual savior which was NAMI. I soon discovered so many useful tools and tips that I still use in my daily life. NAMI has been my teacher, friend, therapist and whatever I need at the time. They still continue to be all of that for me. I honestly would not be here right now writing this without NAMI. I owe them more than just my life. That is why I created this fundraiser to give back to an organization who not only has helped me but millions of others. Please join me in this beautiful and positive fight of breaking the negative stigma around mental illness. The design of the hat is a reflection of one of my weakest points in my life. The design will forever be engraved in my head as a reminder that I was strong enough to not do it and I hope it will be a reminder to you as well if you are going through something similar, have already, or even know a loved one who has. You are loved, you matter, and you are not alone.
