Angel Breeze Scents partnered with the CT Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, United Way of Connecticut, NAMI Connecticut (National Alliance on Mental Illness), and the Institute of Living/Hartford Healthcare to create the Caring Cards Pilot. 3,000 cards were created for this project and distributed to youth and young adults who are transitioning in and out of different levels of treatment, some of whom may have experienced suicidal thoughts or attempts. The inside of each card has one of five different scents, along with a printed quote and a handwritten message. The intent of these handwritten messages is to deliver hope and encouragement to those who are suffering from depression and/or mental illness or have recently overcome their hardships and are now at a point of healing. The back of every card has useful resource information as a quick and helpful reference, if needed. It was truly an amazing project to be a part of!
