The Strength Within is a tribute to all those out there struggling with their mental health issues. Who find the strength to keep on going, even during the darkest of days. Mental health issues can feel incredibly isolating at times, with many people hiding away because of the stigma behind them. Mental health is part of us but doesn’t need to define us.
As someone who suffers from anxiety and depression, I couldn’t have been any more on board when Allison was looking for designers to collaborate and feature her new Struggle & Strength Collection. This is a design that will forever be near and dear to my heart as a project that helped me come forward about my mental struggles as well.
You’re not alone. ♥
