We’re on a mission to help people feel better.
It's okay to ask for help.
According to a CDC report released in summer 2020, 40% of American adults were dealing with a mental health issue, with younger adults, people of color, and unpaid caregivers being among the hardest hit.
“Nearly six in ten Americans report seeking or wanting to seek mental health services for themselves or a loved one.”
—National Council for Behavioral Health, 2018 study
How we got here
For us, it’s personal.
Our co-founder Alex was diagnosed with depression and ADHD in high school and through the care of a trained medical professional was able to find the right mix of therapist support and hemp extract to help him feel more like himself.
At Feals, we believe in equipping our employees with tools and resources to ensure they’re prioritizing their mental health. The team is encouraged to take self-care days (no questions asked) and given a stipend for mental health care.
When it comes to caring for our community, we’re donating our time and financial support to like-minded organizations that are working to destigmatize mental illness.
Everyone has mental health.
You don’t have to be clinically diagnosed to experience anxiety or depression. Our Mental Health Toolkit was compiled with your emotional well-being in mind, and brings together helpful national and local resources across the country.
Good, green Feals.
We believe that self-care shouldn’t come at the expense of our planet’s well-being. As a brand, we’re always looking for ways to reduce our footprint. Our compostable-at-home mailer represents our commitment to building a more sustainable Feals.
State of equity
An unjust reality.
It is estimated that 40,000 Americans are currently incarcerated for hemp-related incidents —incidents that are no longer considered illegal in most states. Feals is supporting The Last Prisoner Project's online programming arm, with our dollars aiding in the mental health challenges of reentry.
Painted Brain addresses mental health challenges and social injustice through art therapy, technology, and education.
Mental Health Coalition is a nonprofit dedicated to helping change the way we talk about and address mental health.
The Last Prisoner Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to criminal justice reform.
We’re listening and learning.
