UnderstandUs is a volunteer initiative that combats the stigma of mental health.

Who We Are

Our Mission?

To provide awareness and education to overcome mental health barriers.

What We Do

Unconventional awareness.

We believe in creating a community of mental health ambassadors through education, events, and apparel.


Make a statement.

Our clothing is meant to be a statement of the support and understanding you are choosing to offer.


You're not alone.

There is never a right or wrong time to seek help, be it by helping yourself or seeking help from others.

Our Campaigns

We create awareness campaigns to spark a positive conversation about mental health. Use your voice to help us promote one of our initiatives within your workplace, classroom, group of friends or on your social media.

Our Stories

The UnderstandUs team was extremely professional and very accommodating as they adapted to our curricular and school needs. They address a very important issue in life that we don't often find in the curriculum.

Jim and UnderstandUs worked with my staff on how mental wellness can impact happiness at work. Not only did it improve attitudes at work but influenced their lives.

Colter Wood Coda and Cade Clothing

Jim was informative and interactive. He made everyone feel comfortable speaking about their personal experiences with mental health which led to open and honest discussions. We have received a lot of positive feedback and look forward to having him back.
