ANSWER #1 of 13

you can make your own or buy them.
it doesn't matter what they are made of or where they're from.
it's to symbolize the disorder you have and support for others.
no it's not charity, but some people on the net do sell them.
I've started making some recently.
for myself and others to sell.

you can also get:

orange or black = self harm
yellow = suicidal
blue or green = depression
green = manic/bipolar depression
teal = anxiety disorder + ocd + panic disorder

you can mix the colors to show support for several things.

if you add 1 white bead to a bracelet is means you are trying to recover from that illness.
if you have half white/half the illness colour it means you're in recovery.

I have a list of all the illnesses [not just mental ones] that are symbolised by colours.
well all the ones I know of.

hope that made sense.

ANSWER #4 of 13

I think EDNOS can be either pink or green, actually. Anorexia is red and bulimia is purple, though, for sure.

Also, black can be for either depression or self-injury as well. And orange usually symbolizes RECOVERY from self-injury, rather than self-injury alone.
