At Freaks on Dope is dedicated to creating fine-quality mental health clothing for men and women, including hoodies, T-shirts, sweatshirts, and more.
As a clothing company founded by two men in recovery from addiction and alcoholism, and both of whom have mental health issues, we were tired of seeing all the low-quality mental health clothing around — and worse, seeing all the trite sayings that people — who don’t know what it’s like to have a mental health issue — put on their clothing lines.
Most if it is either not nearly brave enough for someone who is as brave as you are to wear, or it just makes mental health into this huge joke that “normal” people would wear and laugh at.
Fuck that shit.
We wanted to make clothes that people in recovery from mental health issues would love to wear, feel were fashionable and stylish, and find at the same time that they could wear something that gets a laugh or raises some eyebrows (because they’re both funny and true).
These clothes aren’t for everyone, especially if you’re worried about what people think. We know what it’s like to live with this invisible disability, know what it’s like when you have to hide it (or feel like you have to hide it), know how it feels to be ashamed of who and what you are.
We got tired of that shit, so we made a line of clothing that everyone like us can wear to show pride in themselves, to take back the stigma of mental illness and turn it into something we can joke about, even when times are dark.
If you’re a person with a mental health issue, and you’re looking for clothing with an edge, then you’ve come to the right place. Let us know if you have any questions about any of the mental health clothing available.
