Founded with a Mission

Can our little fabric cuffs change the world? Well, they can bring some smiles and extra confidence to everyday life. But we’re not stopping there. Every purchase of Rhubarb Envy™ Cuffs directly supports better mental health for those with anxiety, depression, and other conditions.

Your purchase matters.

Let’s talk mental health. Mental health is health. Rhubarb Envy recognizes that people from all backgrounds are experiencing increased mental health challenges in today’s world, so we’re partnering with like-minded organizations to help make a difference.

Rhubarb Envy™ founder Mary Hardin understands firsthand how mental health disorders impact lives. In 1994, her younger brother was diagnosed as bipolar. His diagnosis opened the door for the rest of the family to start talking about their own struggles with mental health, and those conversations began a process of healing. Mary read Jessie Close’s biography “Resilience: Two Sisters and a Story of Mental Illness,” and was inspired to support the organization Bring Change to Mind in their mission.

“Every individual who speaks out inspires another. And another. That’s how we’ll end the stigma around mental illness. That’s how we’ll Bring Change to Mind.”
— Bring Change to Mind

Silence isn’t golden. But compassion is. Whether you decide to start the conversation about mental health for you or a loved one, or simply choose to support mental health by purchasing or wearing Rhubarb Envy™ Cuffs, we encourage you to get involved.

Bring Change to Mind is a nonprofit dedicated to raising mental health awareness with creativity and compassion. Actress and activist Glenn Close co-founded this organization after her sister, Jessie Close, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and her nephew, Calen Pick, was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. Today, Bring Change to Mind works with students, businesses, individuals, and communities to amplify support for mental health.
