STAY ANOTHER DAY
SPREAD THE WORD. END THE STIGMA.
Mental health is overlooked yet so many people struggle with it and suffer in silence. Whether we want to admit it or not, there is a bad stigma around mental health. It’s viewed as a weakness, and some people don’t even believe it’s real. Recently I've felt so passionate about trying to help break this stigma. For a while I didn’t prioritize taking care of myself and I felt like I wasn’t going to make it out of the terrible low I'd fallen into. Growth is uncomfortable, and these last few months I have definitely gone out of my comfort zone. I’ve learned that it’s okay to be sad and ask for help. You should acknowledge and embrace these feelings, it’s the first step of getting better. You’re not in this alone & speaking up about how you’re feeling could help you as well as others around you going through the same thing. Remember to check up on your friends and be kind, it goes a long way. Take the steps you need to get better, you have nothing to lose from working on yourself.
Every piece of apparel Stay Another Day produces has a special meaning behind it. From the simple t-shirts to the embroidered hoodies and caps, by wearing these items, they will bring awareness and start conversations about mental health. This is how we end the stigma. Another very special piece that we try to include in all of our products (many times “hidden”) is the “988” number. This is a convenient reminder that the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is just a text or call away!

STAY ANOTHER DAY PODCAST
The theme around Stay Another Day is obvious. Talking about “Mental Health” is the best way to end the Stigma. I have started a Podcast where I will have intriguing guests who will share their own journeys around the subject. Initially many of my guests will have ties to “college athletes”. This sector of the population is certainly dear to my heart, as I can personally relate to the extra pressures of performing at a higher athletic level (specifically the mental aspect). I hope by sharing my experiences, as well as hearing my guests’ stories, it may encourage EVERYONE to just “Stay Another Day” ;)
