In 2013, the government pledged its support in bringing mental health disorders “out of the shadows.” BRKTHRU will seize the shifting tide in American consciousness while incorporating personal motivation & dynamic experience to break down the stigma associated with mental health.

A September 2014 study released by the UN found suicide to be the second leading cause of death in 15-29 year olds globally. To remain most effective in our launch period, it will be essential to target young adults aged 18-24. With this initial target age range we can push an educational agenda that will rely on partnerships with colleges and will attract dynamic individuals to support race teams and event hosting.
