JAIA “Just As I Am” offers judgement free custom apparal that gives a voice to those impacted by addiction and mental health. What you wear says a lot about you. Your message on our apparal could actually change someone’s else life.
Here at JAIA, I’m using my love for clothing and design to bring people together in an effort to help me end the stigma of addiction and mental health. It’s time we stop answering to “How are you?” with “ok” or “good,” covering up the fact that 16 million of us are drowning in depression.
The more I advocate for those touched by addiction and mental health, the more I want to discuss topics that both my JAIA Family and my customers can relate to. Yes, some of us are familiar with disorders like impulsive, depression, anxiety, sex and drug addiction, but some of us are not. Some of us are struggling with these disorders and it’s hell. We need a community that consists of some of you who have been to there and made it out. I need people who love and understand me …Just As I Am. What about you? -Taylor Jones, Owner & Advocate
