The T-Shirt Design shows our expertise on the brain, As you may notice the brain in our T-Shirt design has bandages which symbolize how people with depression hurt emotionally and as you can see there are symbols on the bandages which represent habits/actions that help overcome depression in an organic way. The Heart symbolizes Social support, one of the symptoms of depression is isolation, so it is crucial for depressed people to understand and get close to people that care and worry about them. The Sun represents sunlight exposure, research has shown that patients who spend at least 30 minutes outdoors show improvement in their recovery, and lastly The Z’s mean sleep. I can’t stress enough about how important sleep is, when people with depression don’t obtain the recommended hours of sleep, cranky and negative behavior is shown throughout the day.
The Depression cure contributed a lot to our products specially the Symbols on the bandaids. Me and my group took 3 of the six steps that are part of the TLC (Therapeutic Lifestyle Change) which are Social Support, Sunlight Exposure and Sleep.Want to purchase our t-shirt?

We also created a Little Book or “Booklet” to spread and share our expertise on our chosen topic, which was meant to be attached to the T-shirt using a safety pin and other personalized accessories.
The Little Book includes, the neuroscience behind depression, why me and my group are advocating to end the stigma towards Teen depression and a call to action by including recommended steps to help someone that shows 5 or more symptoms of this mental illness.
