According to Mind 1 in 5 people will have suicidal thoughts. So many of us suffer, yet it is still not normal to talk about mental health issues. From generalised anxiety to OCD, many people do not get help or do not wish to talk about their issues through fear of being judged or shamed.


One way to be more open with "taboo" subjects is to make a statement. Fashion has always been a great way to bring issues to light, and by designing a brand focusing on mental health, Darling Despair hopes to remind people that despite what a person looks like on the outside, we can't tell how much they suffer on the inside. You are not alone.
