Back to Black

The Back to Black Event offers the opportunity to learn more about Mental Health by raising awareness among us.   This is not a charity event; it is an educational event organized by CHIC Management which teams unique and exclusive items that you can purchase with educational signs covering issues ranging from addiction, adhd, autism, bereavement, bipolar disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, bullying, depression, eating disorders, gender dysphoria, generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic attacks, phobias, post-traumatic stress, seasonal affective disorder, epilepsy, self harm to suicide.

As they state on their website CHIC wants to spread the word about mental health and its effect on everything we do and everyone we interact with. The event will be open until February 29th.

Having personally lost several friends to Suicide. I thank CHIC Management, all participating designers and the general public for elevating our knowledge and helping us see that Mental Health is an important aspect in everybody´s life.   It is time to debunk the myth and the stigma associated with seeking help.

Remove the Stigma and More People will be Willing to Seek Help
