Shop with Rough Patch
A unique and important part of the Rough Patch model is a shop which stocks a curated selection of books, mental health resources, self-care items, homewares and other products which support better mental health.
Because Rough Patch is a non-profit social enterprise, all revenue from the shop is put back into the business to further our mission of providing affordable counselling and other programs to the community.
Our products are sourced from businesses who share our passion for social justice and the environment. We prioritise products which are hand-made and local, environmentally-friendly, or support marginalised groups of people, such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people of colour, womxn and non-binary people, LGBTQIA+ people, and people living with mental illness, disabilities and chronic illness, among others.
We also know that not everyone needs or wants to see a counsellor, but can still benefit from mental health supports. We can recommend books and products that build mental health, for either yourself or someone you care about. Just ask one of our friendly staff in the shop, or get in touch.
By buying from the Rough Patch shop, you are directly supporting our sustainability and growth, and making sure we’re around to support anyone who needs us for many years to come.
