about Beyond Broken
It is our mission that through education, research, and increasing global awareness, we can finally end the stigma associated with mental illness.
Supporting Scientific Research - The brain is the most complex and most important organ in our bodies and yet the least understood. Mental illness starts in the mind and it is only through extensive scientific research that we will ever find remedies to the various mental diseases.
Amplify Voices - 1 in 5 Americans experience some form of mental illness each year - making mental illness second only to cancer in its prevalence. Yet even with 43.8 million Americans affected each year, the topic of mental health is all but neglected in our homes, classrooms, places of business, and legislatures. It is the goal of Beyond Broken to support programs and initiatives that amplify the voices of those affected by mental illness and increase mental health awareness nationwide.
Fighting For Mental Health Rights - Our work is about saving lives, reducing suffering, and ensuring that people living with a mental illness are able to pursue their human potential with dignity, full civil rights, appropriate healthcare, and unbridled access to life’s opportunities.
