Original Products

We have a store with our original sayings and phrases on buttons, magnets, wristbands, stickers, and shirts.

Our Focus:

We offer support groups, meetings, seminars (onsite & offsite), events, and activities.  We mail self-injury awareness packets to schools and hospitals so they know what we offer.  If you are a counselor or administrator, please contact us and we will send you a packet.

  • We also attend music festivals where we set up a booth to bring awareness on self-harm and our products with encouraging messages. 
  • We launched an online store in November 2018 and is available 24/7 at Love More Judge Less.  Through our products, we bring hope, awareness, and inspiration via the messages. 

We realize that some people may need help that is "beyond our expertise" and when that happens, we will suggest you seek a professional; this is to keep each member of our groups and organization safe and focused on support; we are not counselors nor do we have the expertise to help "everyone with everything" and since each individual has a history and there are so many "moving parts", we believe it's best to consult a professional when the concern is beyond the support we offer

We refrain from discussions that aren’t related to self-injury, bfrb, or suicide loss and should someone need to talk about issues that are personal of nature or mental health related (beyond our abilities), we will direct people to counseling, a therapist (or crisis care when needed) as this keeps everyone on the right path for success.   ❤️

Free Smiley Face Token

We  have a variety of items that we offer free when we are at seminars and festivals. We would like to offer a wooden smiley token that we believe is a reminder there is always something to smile about and always hope.
