Smiling HeART originates from the story of a group of women with emotional distress. They determined to get out of their emotional illness and regain confidence through creating handcrafts. This group of ordinary housewives suffered from depression due to various pressures. Every day, they needed to face tremendous emotional distress and deal with endless social discrimination. Surprisingly, handcrafts creation created a comfort zone for them. During the process of stitching, they not only found their inner peace but also rebuilt their self-confidence.
Smiling HeART sells handcrafts made by people in recovery from mental illness, especially women with depression. It aims to promote social inclusion and raise public awareness of mental health.
