The HOFF App
The Goal of the Humans of Fashion Foundation is to address and prevent harassment, assault, abuse and misconduct in the fashion industry. The Humans of Fashion Foundation aims to achieve this by providing a platform to guide those who have experienced this type of abuse and the mental health consequences that often follow. The Foundation will connect those in need with pro-bono and subsidized legal professionals, counselors and support networks. HOFF has launched a global app to help those in the fashion industry who have limited resources by providing access to mental health education and pro bono counseling. Legal education and aid will also be available through the app.
The Campaign to Change Direction
Give an Hour is the backbone organization of the Campaign to Change Direction. The goal of the campaign is to change the culture of mental health so that all of those in need receive the care and support they deserve. The Campaign encourages everyone to pay attention to their emotional well-being – and it reminds us that our emotional well-being is just as important as our physical well-being. In order to change our culture, we have to start with a common language and learn the Five Signs. Click here to learn more.
