changing the way we view mental health.
1 out of every 3 people will face a mental health issue in their lifetime, yet society teaches us that speaking out on our mental health is weak. Spark exists because we believe that there should be a fundimental change on the attitudes surrounding mental health. We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to sparking positive mental health conversations through fashionable and comfortable apparel.
Meet the Founder
“Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all.” -Bill Clinton
Welcome kind visitor, my name is Beto Valenzuela and I am the founder of Spark Apparel. I started this organization after realizing how much people struggled to speak out about their emotions out of fear that their "courage" or "manlyhood" would be endangered. I became especially concerned when I learned that almost everyone struggles with mental health at some point in their lives, so I started Spark Apparel as my way to encourage everyone to see mental illness in a more positive light.
