Details of swap:
Those of us out there with Mental Health issues know how nice it is to know that there are others out there like us! Not only does this swap give us a chance to feel like we're not alone and meet others like ourselves, but we also get to cheer eachother up through our crafting!

Communication is key for a great swap! Please post in this thread at least once a week so that we can all stay in touch. It's also a great idea to get in touch with your swap partner as soon as possible once they are assigned. If anyone has any problems, please let me know as soon as possable so we can get it sorted out! When sending out, please pm the organizer as well as when you recieve. When sending you're package, please remember to get a DC# and when sending internationally take a copy of you're reciept as proof that you sent out.

For sizes of items i'm thinking we should send:
2 medium items
2 small items
-If you want to send more/less make sure to check with you're partner first!

I personally just wanted to say this is an awesome idea! So many people have something mental health related there needs to be more awareness about it. Smiley
(I work in a therapist office so I would know.) I just want to wish everyone good fun in the swap! I will be watching to see what you all make as well!

Yayyy, sending in my info now! I think this is great because mental health issues such as depression and anxiety disorders are SO much more common than many people think. Millions of Americans have these issues, and it's nice to know we're not alone.  Grin

Damn, I would love to join, but actually lol mental health issues are keeping me from it.  Changes in meds have made me very flakey and it's probably going to be a few weeks before they find something that works for me.  Lost my good insurance so had to go on state insurance which doesn't cover my meds that were working perfectly for me  Angry  It's been a rough couple of weeks of not getting out of bed and not having a memory.
