One of our students, Alessandra Naccarato, is working toward being a brand ambassador for Wear Your Label.
Wear Your Label started as a simple idea: clothing to create conversations around mental health. Their team members have all experienced mental illness, and united under the common goal of ending the stigma, in style. Our motto? It's okay not to be okay.
For more information about this initiative, please visit: www.wearyourlabel.com
Together, the students and staff at the Virtual Learning Centre can help end the stigma around mental illness.
