My name is Chloe and i'm the person behind TeaKind. TeaKind is a safe and positive space for mental health where you will find a range of mental health resources and products that have all been designed by me. I hope that Teakind will be a reminder that no matter what you're going through you aren't alone and there's always someone or something to help you when you need it.
The TeaKind Story
I have struggled with my mental health on and off since I was around 12 years old and it was when I was going through a really rough patch at the end of 2021 that I first started Teakind. I felt like my world was crumbling around me and there was nothing I could do to stop it. But then I started drawing again which is something I hadn't done for a long time, and as I got more into it this slowly became the way I would fill my days. And from there Teakind has grown into where it is today.
My experiences of living with mental illness are what I draw from to make products that will hopefully help you or someone else you know who is struggling with their mental health. In 2022 I won the inspiring young person award at the mental health and wellbeing awards for Teakind. After doing DBT and it helping me to start rebuilding and living my life again I want to help others do the same. As Marsha Lineham (who developed DBT) would say: I've been through hell and managed to get out and I hope that this will bring a glimmer of hope to those still in hell. And now I want to help others get out of hell too.
Together we can work on breaking down the stigma around mental illness, especially around self harm and suicide.
