Hugs stands for Helping U Get Support and is born out of my own experience of trying to find help and support when I was in the midst of a mental health crisis. I realised that trying to access help quickly via the usual channels was incredibly difficult, unless you have the money available to pay privately.
Originally, Hugs was set up to raise awareness of these struggles and also to showcase the extaordinary creative abilities of sufferers by selling reproduced artwork. We still have a link through to our Etsy Store, but will be working to bring you more features including a directory of groups and charities to help you and a blog with stories, tips and advice from ourselves and others whom struggle with mental illness.
Don't forget to give us a follow on our social media channels to get daily inspiration or self care tips.
