The Union for Mental Health has opened an online store to sell products made by people with mental disabilities.

THE “DIFFERENT ONES» is a project of the Union for Mental Health, dedicated to people with mental disabilities, their attitude and perception.

The goal of the project is to break down the wall of misunderstanding between people with mental disabilities and society. We present to society the creations of people whose life path cannot be called easy, to further reveal their original creativity – sincere and artless.

Creativity is like a two-way mirror. It reflects the author’s vision, and at the same time allows you to investigate his/her inner world and understand the experiences, emotions, even suffering.

The multi-faceted palette of feelings and perception of the surrounding reality in people with mental disabilities is most reflected in their work. They perceive the world much more subtly, see it in such colors, shades, and nuances that an ordinary person will not notice. This is what makes their talent unique, unlike others.

You can buy products and support people with mental disabilities here:
