About Us

Welcome to Ink + Quill, a lifestyle apparel brand with a mission to raise mental health awareness and inspire people to talk openly about their mental health. We believe that mental health is a critical issue that affects millions of people around the world, and it's time to break the stigma and promote a positive change in society.

According to the World Health Organization, one in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Furthermore, studies have shown that there is a significant gap between the number of people who need mental health services and those who receive them. Many individuals face barriers to accessing mental health services, including stigma, discrimination, and lack of resources.

At Ink + Quill, we believe that we can make a difference by raising awareness, breaking the stigma, and promoting open discussions about mental health. Our apparel is designed to help start conversations and promote a culture of support and understanding. We believe that mental health is just as important as physical health, and it's time to treat it as such. Furthermore, we are committed to giving back. Ink + Quill donates 10% of all sales to Mental Health America (MHA) in support of their continued efforts to promote mental health for all. Learn more about MHA at www.mhanational.org. By supporting our brand, you're not only investing in yourself, but you're also investing in the mental health community.

As for our two collections, the “Profound” and the “Playful”, we believe that life requires a healthy balance between the serious and the silly, depth and delight, and the yin and the yang. Although mental health is a serious issue and it is vitally important to respect it as such, we believe that smiles and laughter can be a source of relief during challenging times. Therefore, our goal is not only to promote mental health awareness but to spread joy and happiness through our product offerings. For more details about this healthy balance, head on over to our blog where we wrote a post on the topic.

In addition to our apparel, we will be developing thoughtful and inspiring content to help raise awareness and better educate people on the issues that surround the mental health space today. Our goal is to provide valuable information to individuals and families affected by mental health issues and help reduce the stigma associated with seeking help and speaking up about one’s mental health.

Thank you for joining us on this journey to raise mental health awareness and inspire people to talk openly about their mental health. Together, we can break the stigma and promote a culture of support and understanding.
