Here is an excerpt:
An interview about a clothing line that benefits the homeless in NYC who struggle with schizophrenia.JULIA: Tell me a little bit about your company and why you started it.
MICHELLE: Schizophrenic.NYC is a clothing line started by myself, Michelle a native New Yorker with Schizophrenia who can’t stand to see homeless people with mental illness on the streets. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 20 to 25% of the homeless population in the United States suffers from some form of severe mental illness. This percentage is way too high and needs to change now. Schizophrenic.NYC benefits the city of New York’s mentally ill by donating a portion of our profits we make to organizations throughout New York and it’s boroughs such as Fountain House, NYS Health Foundation, MHA-NYC, and NAMI New York State.
