Urban Outfitters are exploiting mental illnesses in order to make a profit and are completely disregarding the negative effects that this shameless promotion of mental illnesses can have on their target audience (primarily females in their teenage years). Mental illness is not something to be stigmatized or glamorised and therefore this petition is to urge them to ban all products glamorising it.

Urban Outfitters
Halt all production of their "Eat Less" and "Depression" t-shirts, both of which are glamorizing mental illnesses

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I have just sent an email to the Urban Outfitters head office acknowledging that although they have taken down the T-Shirts from the website, surely they owe those affected by them a formal apology (preferably one publicly displayed on their website)

      Fingers crossed for a response!

      I find it disgusting that Urban is promoting such big problems in today's society.

      I personally suffer from depression and it offends me to know that there are girls out there wearing this shirt, thinking that it's like a "Fashion trend" or whatnot, flaunting it like it's a good thing to have.

      It is not.

      I have depression for more than 5 years now and the fact that they are glamorizing a mental illness and could trigger people makes me so angry! Yes, you can make all the clothes you want Urban Outfitters, but promoting a mental illness is just unacceptable in every single fucking way.

      This is 100% wrong. This is not something to joke about. No matter what way they meant this to be perceived it is wrong. This is one of my favorite stores and now I am finding out that they sell many controversial items and that upsets me.
