About Let’s Break the Shame

Let’s Break the Shame, also shortened LBTS, is a foundation that aims to break the stigma around mental health. We cover a lot of different activities – the first, and still biggest, is our Instagram campaign. In our Instagram campaign, people from all over the world share their stories with mental health to have helped the cause of breaking the stigma around mental health and has helped to show people that they are not alone with their struggles. Another one of our events, where speakers from LBTS talk about their own struggles and history with mental health, but another important aspect is to get the guests to talk to each other. LBTS is also present on other social media platforms, making YouTube videos, recording podcasts, and does workshops at schools and organizations. All of it contributes to our goal of breaking the mental health stigma!
