Justin's Break the Silence is a nonprofit organization through the Dakota Medical Fund. Our goal is to help break the silence and stigma surrounding depression and suicide. We want to help anyone we can who is battling with depression, anxiety, and/or suicidal thoughts. We want everyone to know that it is okay to talk to someone about what's going on!
STOP. LISTEN. TALK.
We want to help encourage people struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts. You can help by taking the time to be there for friends and family. It is so important to STOP. LISTEN. and TALK. Around 80% of the time, people who take their own life show "typical symptoms" ahead of time. You can be there to help save a life!
