Kill Silence. Save Lives.
About Breaking Taboo
Breaking Taboo is a unique and much needed volunteer driven nonprofit organization dedicated to providing mental health & suicide prevention education and awareness.
90% of suicides are preventable
1 suicide occurs every 40 seconds
1 in every 4 people suffer from a mental health condition
Most suicides have an underlying mental health condition
Numbers are likely higher, as they often go unreported
We focus on the root cause
Our mission is to Kill Silence and Save Lives by Breaking Taboo around mental health awareness and suicide prevention education.
Our message is that mental health is just as important as physical health – and should be treated that way.
We create, educate, provide, inspire, and transform.
We create accessible education to the common public on life saving issues, while providing resources to get help, inspiring hope and active conversations, and thus transforming the way mental health is approached.
We believe that in order to solve a problem, we must focus on the root cause: the taboo.
Without victimizing nor stigmatizing, we create a shift in society and a better world of empathy.
Our hope is that one day, conversations and education around mental health will be just as open and accessible as those given towards physical health. After all, what is one without the other?
It all starts with a healthy mind. We concentrate on the “health” in “mental health” .
We have created a community and an entire movement.
But we can’t do it alone. We need your help.
We are a volunteer based nonprofit and we rely on people like you to help us create this major change.
Please help us by making a donation so that we can continue our work.

Our Educational Documentary
Currently, one of the projects we are proud to be working on is our much needed, much anticipated documentary film that will revolutionize the way mental health is perceived. This one of it's kind documentary will educate the common public how to prevent suicide, get help, seek resources, and break taboo around mental health. Instead of fearing mental health, people will be more equipped to handle it, for themselves and for their loved ones.
Most of all, it will teach people how to save lives and inspire us all to live, and live mentally healthily. This educational resource will not only be provided to everyone's home, but will also be distributed to public school systems to help adolescents and young adults in need, and also to communities of need.
Dozens of people have already dedicated their time, energy, and resources to this project. Because of this documentary, the world will be a better, healthier, and safer. Because of this education, human lives will be saved.
We need your help to make our projects a reality.
Our supporters and partners fuel every aspect of our hard work – most of us are doing this purely out of our desire to help. If you would like to help us create a better world- a world in which the numbers for suicide finally decrease and a world where mental health is treated with the same consideration as physical health, then please give a contribution today and help us save lives.
The world needs this work now more than ever and every second counts! We need people like you to move from feelings to action. We need people like you to be at the forefront of this change. So please, take action right now and join us in Breaking Taboo. Help us Kill Silence - Save Lives.
