We are hearing more and more about mental health, in the media, in the workplace, in relationships, the list goes on.
Although, we hear about it, nobody really knows what we can do about it. If your friend has a mental illness and they choose to open up to you about it, it can be hard to know what to do to make them feel better. The truth is, it's out of your control to 'fix' how they are feeling. However, you can have a positive impact with a small gesture.
How do I know? In my personal journey to being diagnosed with a Chronic Pain Illness called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, I has a rollercoaster journey of emotions. When I first fell ill, I received a surprise bunch of flowers from friends and it lifted me up. My friends weren't there next to me, they weren't asking questions, they simply sent a gesture to show they were thinking about me and that gave me enough motivation to become stronger.
So, I decided to adapt this concept and produced SnuggleBox.
SnuggleBox is a box filled with carefully handpicked items and a small personal message. It can be sent as a gift for a birthday or other special occasions, or just to let someone know you're thinking of them.
