When we first started Because of a Case, our goal was for everyone to be able to "find their happy case" (#findyourhappycase). You were able to find a design that made you happy, and took you to a positive place. We were inspired by our own battles with anxiety, and we knew that other people were also suffering from mental health issues as well.
We loved the idea that we could create colorful, trendy and fun phone cases that can brighten your day just by looking at it! A phone case is something you carry around with you everywhere, and we were able to spread positivity through it. And in turn, we would donate a portion to help other people suffering from mental health issues.
Our customers started to suggest other causes, and we quickly realized that we wanted to be able to help more people. When you are able to impact someone and make a difference, your mentality changes in a positive way. We realized that we can truly "find our happy case" by giving back as much as we can, and because of you, we are able to do this.
Now we have multiple charity partners that we donate to with each purchase you make! We also have various featured causes that we donate directly to when you buy a case. When you help others, you feel good about the difference you're making. Now we urge everyone to go ahead and Find Your Happy Case.

Minding Your Mind is a non-profit organization whose primary objective is to provide mental health education to adolescents, teens and young adults, their parents, teachers, and school administrators. Our goal is to reduce the stigma and destructive behaviors (self-harm, drug and alcohol abuse, violence, suicide, etc.) often associated with mental health issues. Minding Your Mind Programs move away from crisis-based response to prevention through education.
Research has shown that:
Suicide is the second leading cause of death among young people ages 10-24
Over 90% of those who die from suicide have an undiagnosed mental disorder
Undiagnosed mental health issues are statistically significant among adolescents and teens who experience drug dependency or addiction
Stigma and shame are cited as the number one reason individuals don’t seek treatment for a situational or chronic mental health issue.
Minding Your Mind’s mission is to change these statistics. We have reached hundreds of thousands of individuals with our programs through presentations around the country. In addition to our home base of Pennsylvania, we have an organized presence in the New York–New Jersey–Connecticut tri-state area, Massachusetts, Greater Richmond, VA, and Sarasota, FL.
Our young adult speakers have all experienced a mental health crisis and come through it strong and willing to share their stories to make a difference. Every day they change – even save – the lives of the students who hear them speak. In addition to our Speaker Program, Minding Your Mind provides training and educational programs and training on suicide prevention, mindfulness, body image, and consent.
