Take the Moment: May is Mental Health Awareness Month

A colorful animation made from embroidered images illustrates mental health with a person's head popping up from a garden like a flower.

May brings not only the first blooms of spring but also shines a light on our mental well-being with Mental Health Awareness Month. This is an opportunity for people to take pause, feel empowered to prioritize their mental health and seek support when needed. Think of this month as spring cleaning for the soul, a chance to declutter the mind and the time to plant seeds of well-being that'll bloom all year long. It’s time to nurture both our gardens and our minds!

Let's Sock it to Mental Health Stigma!

At Cute But Crazy Socks, we're not only passionate about bringing joy through our fun socks — we're deeply committed to making positive impacts, especially when it comes to mental health. One aspect of this commitment is giving back to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) through our pledge to donate 1% of all product sales. On May 1 we sent a periodic contribution of $3,638 to this vital cause. We also engage in discussions about mental health (like this blog) to help fight stigma surrounding this very important and very real topic that affects so many people.

Whether it's taking a moment to check in with ourselves, reaching out to a friend or family member who may be struggling, learning how to recognize when someone is in crisis, or participating in community advocacy, there are countless ways we can contribute to the conversation and support mental health awareness. Join us in this important movement as we take a closer look at how each of us can make a difference, one moment at a time.

Reflect, Recharge & Rally

This year, NAMI has chosen "Take the Moment" as their campaign theme for Mental Health Awareness Month. The essence of this movement lies in recognizing the power of pausing amidst the hustle and bustle of life to attend to our mental health. This month, we encourage you to take a moment to reflect on your own mental health, engage in conversations that matter and support initiatives that aim to improve mental well-being in our communities. Your voice, your actions and your support can make a world of difference.

Thank you for standing with us and NAMI as we continue to champion mental health awareness and foster a community of care and support. Whether it's through participating in NAMI's signature programs, sharing their valuable resources or simply encouraging a friend to take a moment for themselves, there are countless ways to contribute to this cause.

Why We Support NAMI

At Cute But Crazy Socks, we stand alongside NAMI in their tireless efforts to advocate for those experiencing mental health crises. We witness people in crisis daily within our local community, often among the most vulnerable populations. With one in five adults likely to experience a mental illness each year, it is up to all of us to learn some of the warning signs and seek help for ourselves, a loved one or a stranger when needed. NAMI provides programming online and through numerous local affiliates to offer accessible support across the United States and in the areas where you — our customers — reside.

You can learn more about our partnership with NAMI on our blog, or check out our Giving Back page to see more ways we are using our "crazy socks" to make a difference for mental health. We invite you to and join us by making your own contribution to NAMI today.
