After losing his sister to suicide in 2011, Rattray founded the Why So Sad? campaign in 2017 with the sole focus of raising awareness for both mental health and suicide prevention. Led by a goal of making sport a daily habit thanks to its stimulating benefits, Why So Sad? was founded as a platform to help approach the seriousness of the subject through a lighthearted play on skate language.

Known for his ties to Blueprint Skateboards, Zero Skateboards and New Balance Numeric, John Rattray’s Why So Sad? project joins the likes of other Community Impact groups such as The Ben Raemers Foundation, Skate Like A Girl, The Center for Healing and Justice Through Sport (CHJS) and The Harold Hunter Foundation in exploring the topic of mental health in and around skate culture. Similar Nike releases that celebrate the open discussion of mental health, include the recent Skate Like A Girl Dunk Low, the LGBTQIA+ supporting Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Be True’ and the ‘In My Feels’ Air Max 270 React from 2019 designed by psychotherapist and mental health advocate Liz Beecroft.
