Mad Hatter Industries is not your average apparel company. The apparel is a bonus and a great way to spread the idea behind creating a community that supports each other and has their brother or sisters back at a time of need.
It is also about inspiring and motivating each other to overcome whatever adversity you face. Whether it be anxiety from stepping out the door or worrying about flashbacks from your first or last tour facing you when you run into crisis.
It is everything above and more but most importantly, it is a promise to yourself that you will take No Quarter with the struggles that you are dealing with.
You will not accept having them rule your life and therefore will take no prisoner or terms with your issue to allow it to dictate what you can or cannot do.
You are the Master and Commander of your life and we are here to assist by steering you in the right direction. If you are stuck in a rocky spot or have been set adrift, we will right your sail and put you on the proper course to recovery and success.
It starts with you and it ends with you. Everything you do going forward is your choice to make. But we are here to help.
Our mission is to create a community that supports individuals to create a fighting mindset for people who are struggling with mental illness. We want to help you push through tough times and to continue the fight and to never accept having to succumb to the pressure of your illness.
*If you or anyone you know are having any serious thoughts of harm contact the Crisis Service Center Immediately! http://www.crisisservicescanada.ca/
If you are a veteran, Police Officer, Emergency Service worker, or member of the community suffering from a mental health issue, WE ARE HERE TO HELP. We will never say we are a replacement or alternative for professional therapy and mental health services, but we are that ear to bend if you want something beyond the one hour prescribed counseling. the cup of coffee, beer in the garage, or helping hand beyond the usual treatment.
It is not simple to “change our thoughts,” but it can be the crucial first step to a journey of change along your road to recovery.
Find what will be your light in the storm.
We know what it is like to be so overwhelmed you can’t get out of bed, unable to feel after your twenty-third ramp ceremony, the breath of air you can’t find when life’s pressure becomes too great, or that final realization at that hole that you have fallen into that there is a hope, a glimmer of light, that things will get better, that there is hope.
We make a promise that going forward,“NO QUARTER” will be given to the issues you face. You will overcome and you will persevere. No matter how long it takes or how hard the journey, there is a way forward.
Mad Hatter was a name that evolved from my first tour in Afghanistan. It was a term of endearment to one of my favorite jobs, the Machine Gunner. A machine gunner is responsible for the tactical employment of the 7.62mm general purpose machine gun by providing direct fire in support of the platoon.
The Mad Hatter Industries logo is meant to be something that you can place your confidence and trust in that it won’t let you down and will watch your back (or your six).
I am, and we are here from the lowest depths to the light that drives and motivates us to do what we do.
