About Us

Together Bar is founded by Chris Carlton, a Richmond resident, entrepreneur, veteran, and mental health advocate. He is the author of Nice To Meet Me, and among other roles, the former marketing director for 1in6.org, where he and his team developed the campaign, 1BlueString, which is still thriving as a global mental health awareness campaign. 
For years, Chris has been using a toolkit to maintain his own mental health after being diagnosed with PTSD in 2010. Over time he learned that his diet played an important role in his recovery. With months of research and input (and trial and a lot of error) he developed these mental-health-friendly bars to take with him when he traveled for work. They were so good, they needed to be shared. 
The mission of Together Bar is to raise funds for mental health care programs. We'll start in Richmond, VA at first, and we hope to grow. If you're interested in being a partner, making a pledge to donate to the charities we have in mind for each bar we sell, please reach out, we'd love to talk. info@wearetogetherbar.com. 
Let's make the world feel a little less alone, together.
