Hey everyone,
 
I dont know if you have seen the ribbons and wrisbands ppl wear to highlight particualr causes.
 
e.g pink ribbon for breast cancer
     red ribbon for aids  etc....
 
I just wondered if any knew of one specifically for anxiety. Ive been looking on the internet but there too many to choose from. There orange one and a few teal ones each saying something different. I thought the official one was teal band saying triumph but cant find it. Anyone know anything?
 
My main reason for wanting to wear this, is so other ppl with anxiety can recognise it and mayb get talking.
 
Thanks for reading

Sounds like we may have to make some of our own, and get the word out ourselves :) There is a lot of power in numbers ;)

Just clarify ADAA official wristband was teal in colour and the word TRIUMPH embossed on it.

There is a similar wrist band released by a private company available in teal but has the words KNOW OF embossed in it. The KNOW OF campaign is trying to help raise awareness of various mental illnesses and the teal colour is associated with anxiety disorders and DID form what i can tell. The only problem is the money for this wristband doesn't go to charity like the TRIUMPH band.

Maybe you mods can have a word with admin and get to think about selling something similar in HW shop.

Regards

Really, I did not know that and I should have.  Shame on me.  I will have to do some research on where to order from.

Thanks
