Emerging Into Light Lapel Pin
Wear this pin proudly as a symbol of your personal commitment to creating a community of hope and support for people with mental illness.
Emerging Into Light represents a movement to build a community of hope, support and inclusion for people with mental illness.
The image is the original artwork of Jennifer Osborn, a young woman of considerable artistic talent, living with mental illness. To some it’s a flame in the dark, to others it’s a phoenix reborn. Jennifer created this image to convey the dignity of our ongoing journey of recovery from mental illness.
The image speaks of hope, resilience, recovery and the potential of people, and—like ribbons have done for other movements—has become a personal badge of pride for people who truly care about mental health issues.
