We love working with journalists around the world to share our story and our mission, and to help with mental health. The more we drive our message, the more awareness we bring, thus the more lives we can save and the more change we create!

Breaking Taboo was started by Serena Hope Sun because she was sick of loosing friends to suicide and wanted to save lives on a wider scale with a more accessible approach. We are a volunteer driven nonprofit movement to bring accessible mental health awareness and suicide prevention education in a  modern and approachable format via educational programs, media content, community, and awareness programs while eliminating the taboo.
