From David Halvorson, founder of Windy Willow Apparel:
To my friends, family, and those I have not had the privilege to meet,
In August of 2016, Windy Willow set out to start a business. Immediately, our focus was centered around the mental health community.
On a personal level, I’ve lost too many friends in the past few years under 21 years of age to suicide, with many others who have attempted. There’s a strange disconnect in our brains-we know there’s something terrible going on with failing mental health, yet no one wants to talk about it. I threw myself into an uncomfortable position where I open up and discuss what’s on my mind. Through open discussion and collaboration, we’re building our community.
We suck at talking, but we need it.
In a nutshell, I’m attempting to push the concept of expanding our mental capacities by communicating with one another with a TRUE open mind. In doing so, we learn about ideas that we may not even be aware of that can help to understand our own thoughts.
If you can visualize something, create a concept that stands for something. And if your cause is just, it will materialize into something amazing.
