About MentalHealthTools

Sales 404
On Etsy since 2020

A little HX

Designed with mental health in mind...@thesmallgroupidentity started as a resource for small groups and has become an access point for interventions & apparel. @thesmallgroupidentity is the parent company for MentalHealthTools, its Etsy shop name. The owner's dream is to have a one-stop shop for counselors to locate valuable tools that improve their clients' mental health. These tools can also benefit small group members, and customer's loved ones. As she continues to build her online shop, Nicki develops products inspired by her professional experiences in small group ministry, sales & marketing, and now trauma therapy.

MentalHealthTools exists to support fellow therapists, small group leaders, and community members. Striving to bring awareness to mental health issues and its stigma through our product offerings, our apparel line was designed with breaking the stigma and normalizing therapy in mind. The workbook offerings provide original, creative, interventions for integrating art therapy into sessions. Our office decor and intervention tools work to enhance therapist's sessions and workspaces.

The owner, Nicki Gaskins, began her creative content journey within small group ministry leadership when she started writing down her unique lesson plans, decades ago. After a long career in real estate sales, marketing, training and management, Nicki pursued a new calling by attending graduate school for counseling. In graduate school, Nicki found that her experiences with art, creativity and designing small group curriculum translated beautifully into therapeutic interventions. In 2018, Nicki spoke at her first conference and began selling her group curriculum workbooks.

Currently, Nicki works as a trauma counselor at a non-profit agency in South Carolina. She has Masters degrees in Education in Counseling and Development and School Counseling. She has also worked in Substance Abuse PHP, private practice, and as a full time School Counselor with many populations. She particularly loves adolescents and children and is very family systems oriented. She is a licensed Associate Counselor in South and North Carolina (LPCA and LCMHCA, respectively). Nicki speaks annually at the SCCA Convention, where she began selling her apparel this year. This Etsy shop is a dream come true for her and hopes her contributions to this marketplace will help many others.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Almost all of my items are customizable and I welcome customer orders! There will likely be an increase in turnaround time for customized products and prices for custom items may adjust as well. Please email me with customizing questions, for pricing, and availability.

Care instructions

All apparel has its own care instructions. However, I have found that my products respond best to delicate cycle wash, line dry, and ironing per item instructions.

Sizing details

Please don't hesitate to email me about exact measurements of t-shirts and sweatshirts. Some of my products do run small, so if you do not like your tees and sweats fitted, please email me for more info.

Gift wrapping and packaging

My products are shipped safely and all are wrapped in blue tissue with a company sticker and accompanied by company literature. However, I will gladly add gift wrap or special packaging to your order, if desired. Please email me and we can chat about it. Once we agree on the desired wrapping, I will create a special listing to charge you for the wrapping.

For holiday wrapping, please use special seasonal wrapping listing. If you need helping selecting the correct size, please DM me.
