Let's Talk About Mental Health
Show your support for people dealing with mental illness with mental health awareness pins from PinMart. The National Alliance on Mental Illness estimates that about 1 in 5 people in the U.S. experience mental illness, making this group of disorders common among both adults and children. Yet fewer than 50% of adults received treatment in 2018. While there are a number of reasons why people don't get treatment, individuals often feel a stigma associated with mental health conditions or feel a sense of hopelessness and loneliness that makes taking the next step a struggle.
When you wear a mental health pin, you show others that you care and that they aren't alone. You can help reduce the shame and embarrassment that some people feel. Showing your support by wearing mental health awareness pins, such as green ribbon pins, "break the stigma" pins, or a semicolon – a symbol selected to help raise awareness of and support those dealing with mental illness and suicide – lets others know that mental disorders are illnesses, and they deserve treatment. Our selection of mental health pins and pin sets can be ordered individually or in bulk and make great giveaways for those attending conventions and meetings or gifts for those who want to raise awareness and show their support.
If you or someone you know is in crisis and facing a life-threatening emergency, call 911. Help for those at risk of or contemplating suicide is available from the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Many states and localities also offer behavioral urgent care and similar services for individuals who need assistance. You can also contact a local mental health professional to learn about what resources are available in your area.
