According to the National Institute on Mental Health nearly 1 in 5, or 46.6 million, Americans live with a mental illness. Additionally, the CDC reports that nearly 40% of US adults reported struggling with mental health or substance use during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Moral of the story? Mental health awareness is more important than ever.
The Unisex brand, Yunizon Eyewear (an alternative pronunciation for the word unison), Founders, Rebecca Lay, and Kimberly Van-Schoyck created the brand with the goal to bring mental health awareness to the forefront of the fashion industry. The brand’s core principles: free expression, inclusivity, and belonging create an environment that is free of inhibitions and judgment, resulting in a sense of belonging that is fundamental to human satisfaction.
Additionally, Yunizon sees a balanced state of mind as the key to promoting these principles and are advocates for mental health initiatives. In line with this, the brand donates a portion of our proceeds to the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Yunizon Eyewear is committed to being part of the solution because we are all “Under One Sun”.
In honor of World Mental Health Awareness Day Yunizon will donate 15% of all proceeds to the National Alliance on Mental Illness and will give you 15% off your order.
