Problem Statement

How might we encourage young people to access mental health support services?


Customer / Problem

There exists a lack of mental health support services for young people.


Solution

Our solution is socks designed by a local art therapy group that are then sold to raise money for mental health support service groups.

Here at SFS we believe everyone has the right to positive mental health. All profits are donated to support people with mental health issues.

We sell socks!

The team at SFS are currently developing socks with a cause to support mental health and the wellbeing of all people. 

Look at our awesome range of socks: 

Socks for Support

The designs would be made in partnerships with our local art therapy which would promote their art and give us amazing, original and unique designs. These designs will look similar to the ones below:

Our website 

We made a prototype website to see how it would run and how it would help the charity. On the website it would show the information about the charity and also where you can buy the socks.
