Charity photography t-shirt project, Compos Mentis has collaborated with Carhartt WIP to create a capsule collection of t-shirts. The charity project, founded by Scott Causier, has worked alongside photographers Chris Rhodes, Ed Phillips, Maisie Willoughby, Ian Kenneth Bird and Sophie Green, all of whom have donated their images to be used on the Compos Mentis collection.
All proceeds from T-shirt sales will be going to MQ Mental Health — a charity that collates the findings of independent research to paint a detailed landscape of how we deal with mental health issues — in the face of the ever present reality that one in four of us is affected by a mental health issue each year.
These issues, which take many shapes and forms, are often heightened by socioeconomic factors, with those in desperate need of treatment slipping through support gaps. Continued cuts to public spending on mental wellbeing and increasing levels of poverty both feed into the cyclical nature of the many causes of problems with our mental health. MQ Mental Health aim to further the research around economic disadvantage and its relationship with mental health issues and treatment.
With the collection featuring a range of innovative and appealing images, there’s no reason to not get yourself down to the Compos Mentis launch, taking place in the Old Street Gallery, on Friday 5th of October from 7pm to pick one up for yourself for a nifty £35.
