Welcome Brain Holers!

First of all, thank you for stopping by! The Brain Hole is a site that was started to fill a need in many areas of the mental illness community. There is a lot of information out there, and much of it is very clinical. There are not too many local resources that help with donation requests that are considered "unnecessary". What if you are starting a new job and are in desperate need of a professional haircut? Perhaps you have found that painting helps control your anxiety, yet you are unable to afford supplies. You realize therapy is the best option for your eating disorder,  and your future, but you cannot afford the gasoline to make it the 45 minute drive one way. What do you do?

The Brain Hole to the rescue.

We are a charity that believes in you, your mental health, and your future. We also believe in fun, because otherwise life would be very dull. So yes, you can buy funny tee's, read funny blog entries, smell Happy Place Candles, and laugh at the ridiculous things that we all encounter in life. 

But we are so much more than that. We are where you can turn for advice. For help. For assistance. And most importantly...to BELONG.

We may have a silly name (more on that in About Us section!), but we are working on a serious cause. Mental Illness affects 20% of youth 13-18, and suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death in those 10-24. Mental Illness knows no gender, no ethnicity, no age. 

We want to a champion for patient rights. We want to help those who are working so hard to improve their lives. We want these heartbreaking numbers to go down. It all starts with YOU. Whether you buy a hilarious tee (our opinion, of course!), or an anxiety-relieving Happy Place Candle, you are helping those who have nowhere to turn for help. Our profits go to buy gift cards, art supplies, and numerous other charitable donations to assist those who cannot find these "unnecessary" items on their journey of improvement.
